The approach is to guide children and families towards a wholefood-based diet, which is balanced, offers variety, is practical to achieve, and provides enjoyment.
How to play the Foodamon card game
For 2-4 players
Give every player one Secret Sauce card.
Shuffle and deal the rest of the cards face down.
Hold your cards face up so you can only see the top card.
The player to the dealer’s left starts.
Read out a statistic from the list (e.g. Energy 25). The other players then read out the same statistic.
If you have the highest value, you win that round. Take all the top cards and put them at the bottom of your deck.
It is your turn to choose a statistic from the next card.
If two or more cards share the highest value, all cards go into the middle and you read the same statistic from your next card. The winner of this round takes the cards in the middle as well.
The person with all the cards at the end wins the game.
You may play your Secret Sauce card once at any point in the game, it is then placed face down on the table. If you have the Dinner Plate card, you automatically win that round and the card is placed face down on the table.
