Hi Jammi,

Here is my impression :

Eat To Win funutritional games are a long-awaited, much-needed tool to help us move towards improving our approach to childhood obesity.  These games will allow me to engage the entire family and educate them in a fun way that will help them develop the skills for sustainable healthy active living habits- thank you!

Hi Jammi,

I can tell you so many kids and families showed up for our event in hopes to win your game.  Those who did are so happy with them.  Just today a 3rd grade teacher expressed how excited her kids are to play it in the classroom, they love indoor recess when they can play it.

 Please tell anyone they can contact me if they want to speak to someone who has found success with the game.

The students really enjoyed the game! The kids beg me to play the game now.  I have used it with all three of my groups, K-1, 2-3, and 4-5.  They all love it.  They really had a lot of fun and enjoyed the “Do It” cards.  I had the classroom teacher sit in and watch for a bit and she really got a kick out of the kids and the game.  

Thanks so much.

Thank you so much for the Eat to Win Game! My 5 and 6 year old LOVE to play! This is our “go-to” game lately.  My 6 year old needs the positive message of eating healthy because his classmates crinkle their noses at his fresh fruit and veggie snacks.  My 5 year old recognized the MyPlate.Gov logo on a cereal box and said, “Look mom, it’s From Eat to Win!”

P.S. We can’t wait to share this game with friends!

Jammi,
We played the game tonight.  We had a blast, Gracie wants to play again tomorrow.  It wore me out.  My sides are KILLING me.  The do it cards are are hard for an OLD woman out of shape.  I’m guessing that’s the aim of the game, huh!

This is not a normal board game. You will go around the board, but you won’t sit still long! If you happen to land on the Eat It spaces you have to answer the question correctly or pay money to the bank. If you get it right, you get money from the bank and get to put a food token in the center of the board. If you land on a challenge space, you answer a question about food nutrition and if you do it correctly you receive money plus the person who asked the question receives money too. If you answer wrong, only the person who ask the question gets the money. The Do It spaces are what did me in. When you land on these spaces, you have to get up and do what it says or pay the Lazy fine of $200. The Do It Challenge might be Run in place while singing Old MacDonald Had A Farm, Pretend to Twirl A Hula Hoop 5 Times around, Pretend You Are A Fish And Swim Around The Room Or many others! I’ll admit, by the end, I PAID the lazy fine a couple of times and you guys know that I am cheap and would never pay a fine unless I just had to.

This game is SO fun. I really mean it. I think that you would really enjoy it if you gave it chance and you and your family would unknowingly learn so much about nutrition. You’ll learn about calorie counts the fun way, learn what are veggies and what are fruits. You’ll also have some great family time. What else could you ask for! We really had a blast. Gracie is having company over this weekend and I bet they play this game while she is over.

A Lucky LadyBug Mommy Review 

 

I got this cool game along with some extra games to go along with it. This game is great for toddlers and up, teach them the value of food and what is to much and not enough. It has loads of questions on yes or no, some that just make you giggle to much, and while others that make you do things. Pretty active game and loads of fun. My 3 year would not stop talking about it and how he wanted to play all day. I really like the whole ideal concept of the game, teaching kids about obesity and what not. Kids learn from us, and if we don’t let them no about the wrongs of it, they will grow up thinking Fast Food is okay to eat and which it is not, at moderation’s of course. The game is colorful, easy to read, easy to navigate, the game is busy and keeps minds on the game the whole time.

What I love about Eat to Win is that my kids are learning about a healthy lifestyle while they are playing. They don’t even realize that they are walking away and learning a few things too! It makes being healthy fun instead of boring. It is for kids 6 and up, but my 5 year old did okay with it (we did have to help him read the cards and spaces). It a great family game that will have you all laughing and learning about a healthy life style!

My boys loved playing with these cards and they especially enjoyed the Eat It cards, which contained questions about different types of food, and the Do It cards, which contained fun activities for children to do right at that minute. From singing while rowing an imaginary boat to standing and sitting five times as fast as possible, the actions had my boys hopping and laughing every time. And the cards can also be used with the original Eat to Win board game so that younger or older children can still be challenged!

We also received a Personal Food Tracker and I loved that it had magnets so that it could be attached to the fridge. Every time the boys had a snack or meal, they determined the food groups within their meal and marked them down on the tracker with a dry erase pen. It was a handy and interactive way to ensure my carb-loving youngest son and my protein-loving oldest son were getting a balanced diet. And it was a great reinforcement of the learning that the boys did with the Eat to Win cards!

Okay- I seriously have not been able to pull these two away from the game.  They played until 11:30 last night and got up and started again today.  I’ll confess that the whole family hasn’t played yet but it’s only because we’re enjoying the new babysitter in the house. HUGE hit with the kids.  Favorite picture- ant lifting weights.  They’re your biggest fans and Mom is impressed too.  She would like you to make a game about manners next ;-).
Thanks for the game.  
I’ll blog about it too- you did a great job- original, educational, family oriented, active, awesome

 Eat to Win Board Game is a fun interactive board game for the whole family! Get Health-i-Cational with this nutrition based board game. Geared for ages 6-13 but is fun for the entire family to play.

I sat down with my ‘littles’ aged 6, 9, 11 and we set up for a great game time. This game in my opinion has some characteristics of Life. You are working your way through, sometimes choosing cards where you pay, and other times getting rewarded, based on what food you land on.

The Eat It cards ask a question based on nutrition and if you choose the right answer you get paid. The Do It cards give you a task to do like, the fly around the room like an airplane or dance like a chicken. There are some cards that drag all of us in to the activity.

Here Maverick was dancing like a chicken.
