If you remember, I'd earlier blogged about the makers of Hidden Valley® Salad Dressings who'd created the Love Your Veggies™ campaign to help children develop a life-long love of vegetables through activities at home, at school and in the community.
As part of their continued effort to help parents and educators overcome the challenges of getting children to eat their vegetables, the makers of Hidden Valley Salad Dressings have now created Veggie Adventures, a free online game that can be played now at www.loveyourveggies.com/games. Keeping in mind a recent study that indicated that 60 percent of parents play computer games with their kids, the makers of Hidden Valley Dressings hope Veggie Adventures will be yet another tool for moms to utilize to expand their young children's appreciation for vegetables.
Veggie Adventures engages families in a three-part vegetable adventure that begins with growing vegetables on the farm and ends with serving and sharing vegetables with friends. Along with fun and easy game-play, Veggie Adventures provides players with great tips and vegetable facts meant to be transplanted outside of the gaming experience. At the end of each stage, players receive a printable certificate to commemorate their success.
There are three easy and fun games, each with a facility for user login, scoring and saving your game. And which are pretty fast loading with pleasing graphics. The first game 'At the Farm' is naturally, growing your veggies and protecting them from critters. Second 'On the Road' is for taking the veggies to the market safely. And the third (which I was unable to play for some reason) is 'In The Kitchen'. While playing children get a sense of what it takes to grow, transport and ultimately prepare vegetables for a tasty meal. Fun and Healthy - what could be better? And it's never too early to instill good eating habits, right?
So, do go and check out Veggie Adventures at www.loveyourveggies.com/games. Thanks to Mom Central for introducing me to these fun games!
