Ages: 4 to 8
What it teaches: Science (Physical Science, Investigation) Health (Healthy Body)
Why I recommend it: Kids and parent both get to play with their food while learning about healthy choices. The science of nutrition is presented in a kid friendly way of smashing food. Estimating, comparing and connecting the nutritional value of salt, sugar and fat are linked completely in the smashing experience.
