J'ai faim game
The Mustela Foundation game “J’ai faim!” (I’m Hungry!) is aimed at making young and old aware of the basic rules for a healthy diet. This game answers a recent public health preoccupation, the prevention of child and adult obesity.
In order to create this game, the Foundation brought together a work group with varied skills: a psychomotor therapist, paediatric nurses and a nutritionist. A games library finalised the rules and the game’s presentation. The game was also tested on children 3 to 6 years old.
The “I’m hungry!” game is thus at the disposal of different early childhood facilities such as nursery schools.
Age : from 3 years old
Length of game: 10 to 20 minutes
Number of players: 2 to 4 or by teams
The principle of the game
With the help of an adult-organiser, the budding-chef players must collectively attempt to prepare menus for a typical day including breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner. Each in turn will announce the ingredient he or she thinks she will find in the pile to complete one of the meals, then turns the spoon in chef La Tambouille’s (Grub) cauldron, for many surprises in store!
The aim of the game
To win the game before Monsieur Avaltout (Gobbleitall) gets a chance to. In order to do this, players complete the four main meals of the day together by filling up the dining room tray. When all of the dining room boxes have been filled, you’ve won!!! Unless Monsieur Avaltout fills his tray of sweets before the players have completed the dining room meals… This game has a number of levels of difficulty depending on the number of pieces used (the more pieces there are, the lesser the probability of winning).
