PROMOTING HEALTHY CONVERSATIONS
The Foodtalk Game can also be used to engage with families. You could invite the families of young children to play the game as a fun and educational nutrition intervention. This could be a one-off intervention around a specific topic, or a 4 - 5 week intervention, where knowledge is developed over time.
Public Health teams like the London Borough of Brent are embedding the game into their early years programmes, using it both as a training resource for early years' staff, and as a Tier 1 intervention with parents, to meet outcomes in obesity prevention, nutrition, physical activity and oral health.
We recently evaluated the game’s use in Brent, and 100% of participants said they would recommend the game.
