About

In this fun, play-based lesson, students learn that food that is closer to nature is healthier for us and for the planet. Students watch a short, engaging video that shows them several ways to think about food—ways that will help them make healthy choices. Then they play the Good Food Game, a living board game that helps them synthesize what they’ve learned. In the game, students select one of two food choices and find that making a healthy choice is both fun and rewarding!

Explain that foods that are closer to nature are better for people and for the planet.
