Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Game I randomly came across this game via a friend and was skeptical that my preschool students (4-5) would find this game engaging. I admit - I was so wrong. After six months, this is still one of their favorite games in to play and they had mastered playing it independently and teaching it to new friends. They love that it is a simple, short game that they can play enough times for everyone to have a chance to win without it taking too long. Although it's not technically a cooperative game - they help each other and the readers in the group will help direct the others to favorite foods. Plus, the multiple pieces and cardboard placemats have survived six months on the games shelf with minimal lost pieces and being unbroken - which is awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Fun, Educational Game! I introduced this game to my class of seven year olds during our Nutrition unit. I loved that the directions were simple and easy for them to understand quickly. The "give" and "take" sections of the spinner absolutely add an element to the game that makes them LOVE it! After teaching them to play the game, it is a perfect addition to centers or small group time since it is self-checking. The game pieces and boards are very durable and I know it will be a big hit in my classroom for a long time! I only wish it were more than 4 players, or that I had multiple sets of the game so MORE students could play at the same time! *Learning Resources provided this game to my classroom for me to review, but this donation had no impact on this review.*

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm ordering more! I use these games in my nutrition education classes. At this point, I have only used them for students in grades K-5 and couldn't have been more happily surprised with how engaged the students were. I had students ask me to play the game again during my following visit. I was pleased, very pleased with the ease of adaptability for all of the grade levels, and plan to use them with my adult classes as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game! Healthy Helpings MyPlate Game is the perfect way to introduce food groups, healthy food choices, and balanced meals. My 3 and 4 year old picked up how to play very quickly and loved picking out their favorite foods. This game is durable and fun and will provide years of fun, healthy play!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy Helpings This game helps the children learn the food groups and how to make healthy, balanced meals. Once the children know how to play, they can easily play this game at a station. It is self-checking and tons of fun. Students in kindergarten through second grade will benefit most from this game. Not only will it will help enhance your unit on nutrition, it will also be a nice addition to your classroom game shelf any day of the year! The game includes 4 plates, tons of real-life photos of foods from all the different food groups, and a spinner. Every piece in this game is incredibly durable and appealing to the eye. The object of the game is to be the first person to build a healthy meal. Players take turns spinning the spinner. If the spinner lands on protein, you choose a protein. If the spinner lands on fruit, you choose a fruit, etc. There are also two fun twists in the game! The first twist is called "give." If you land on "give" you have to take one of your pieces of food and give it to someone who needs it. The second twist is called "take." If you land on "take" you can take a piece of food from someone. I LOVE how this game is self-checking. Each food piece is color coded on the back and the children know if they made a mistake. It's even labeled with the name of the food, like cantaloupe and avocado so they become familiar with these healthy foods and then go home and ask their parents to buy it because it's good for you!
