The ‘Mole’s Veggie Adventure’ game, developed as part of the preschool work of the EIT Food School Network, is up and running in Finland, Poland and the UK and is proving a great success!
The free app was designed to guide and inspire preschool children to become familiar with vegetables and self-regulate their food intake. It can be used as a tool for early childhood nutritional education.
Trials of the app in care centres in Finland and Poland have been very well received by children and preschool teachers.
The game follows Mole’s adventures into vegetables, and gives children the opportunity to learn about the tastes, smells, shapes and colours of a variety of fruit and vegetables. There are also group games that teach the children about the seasonal produce.
The app is available to download now for free at app stores! Just search for ‘Mole’s Veggie Adventures’.
