From Creative Cooking Games to Vegetarian Public Schools

Now that obesity has more than doubled in children and adults over the last few decades, products, projects and programs that promote kid's nutrition are becoming more important than ever.

Although junk food seems like it will always be more appealing to kids, healthy eating is being turned into a source of entertainment with games like Pixelate and Funfair In Your Mouth. Similarly, by merging education and fun, Menu Mash-Up is a card-based cooking game that teaches kids meals that they can prepare in the real world.

While some schools are stuck debating whether or not soda should be sold through vending machines in the cafeteria, NYC's PS 244 is leading a health movement by serving its students only plant-based meals, now proudly calling itself the nation's first vegetarian public school.
