Kids, Play With Your Food

In an effort to educate the nation’s neediest children on nutrition, a new project uses the familiar medium of video games to broadcast its message.

The Fantastic Food Challenge, a package of four computer games, is designed to teach people who get nutrition aid such as federal food stamps how to make better use of their food. Because so many young adults played such games as kids, they ought to be able to learn more easily from them, too, said the project’s director.
