The Food Talk Game is an essential part of my Food and
Nutrition Training toolkit. I use the game in various ways when delivering my Food
Nutrition in Childcare courses, a joint award programme with the Royal Environmental
Health Institute for Scotland (REHIS):
- It’s a great way to break from the lecture style of
- I use the game to assess how much my students have
learned from their training
- My students use the game in many of the activities
plan to take back to their setting- for training their colleagues and for
sessions with children and parents.
It’s often said that the simplest ideas are the best-
certainly true of Food Talk - it’s simplicity is it’s greatest asset and makes it
versatile teaching aid.
