Red Light, Yellow Light, Green Light: This is an interactive game that teaches kids about nutrition. Gather pictures or actual foods if you have them at home ranging from healthy to junk foods. When you say “green light” have your kids point to healthy choices such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. When you say “yellow light” have your kids point to foods that should be consumed in moderation such as healthy fats (peanut butter) and high sugars (granola bars). When you say “red light” have your kids point to foods that should be enjoyed only on special occasions such as chips, soda, cakes, and candy. It is important to teach good nutrition early in life, and to lead as a healthy role model for your children. This game can serve as a learning tool for both parent and child.
