This game explores the different reasons we choose to eat, and helps us be aware of when our body needs food and when it does not. Learners choose a character, and then are faced with several decisions on whether to eat something at different times. A hunger meter displays how hungry the character is, and a wheel of emotions points out how the character is feeling. After you make your choice, feedback appears on what the healthiest choice would be in that situation. (less)

This game asks you a series of questions about how much time you spend in front of a screen, not being active. It begins by pointing out that since we spend a lot of time in front of computer screens at work or school, additional time at home can really affect how healthy we are. It asks how much time you spend watching TV, playing computer games, and using the computer each day. It then adds up the total amount of screen time you spend every day, and calculates how many hours you spend a year in front of a screen. It also tells you if that's a healthy amount, and suggests ways to stay active while in front of screens. (less)
