Crunch a Color

This engaging food game, which was named one of the top children's products of the year by Dr. Toy and Parent Tested, Parent Approved,  gives moms and dads an educational opportunity to better their family's diet. Crunch a Color is a card game for 2 to 4 players that awards kids points for eating a balanced and colorful plate of veggies, fruits, proteins, and grains. Kids also get bonus points for good manners and trying new foods. Playing this healthy eating game teaches your kiddos how to choose nutritious foods for themselves and will inspire them to make real-food choices that improve their health.

As a bonus, a portion of each purchase supports non-profit children's nutrition programs including Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, FoodCorps, and Alice Waters' Edible School Yard.

Gather your family around the dinner table and serve your meal (make a meal that has as many colors as possible). At the end of the meal, award your kids cards for each serving eaten. Cards are awarded for colors of fruits and veggies, healthy grains, proteins, and liquids. So, if your son eats his broccoli, hand him a green card. There is no limit to the number of color and bonus cards players can earn, but no more than one card from each of the categories can be awarded. Your aim is to award food choices that result in a balanced meal. Points are also awarded for whole foods as opposed to processed foods. Bonus cards are given out for trying new foods, setting the table, eating the right portion size, table etiquette and more.

The goal is to earn at least 30 points, 3 color cards, and 1 protein card. Each food category or card has a specified number of points.
