The Dairy Council of California website
provides current, credible nutrition and health information to
help people make healthful food choices. "My
Very Own Pizza" and "BreakFAST
and Jump To It!" are interactive games that teach kids
the importance of eating a balanced diet based on the food pyramid.
Implementing Flash allows us to simulate a "hands on" approach
to nutrition education. An illustrated kitchen environment comes
to life when brought into Flash, resulting in memorable lessons
for children as they choose what to eat for breakfast and which
toppings to include in their pizza recipe. In "My Very Own Pizza," kids
are asked to name their recipe, which appears in printable format
upon completion so they can make it with mom or dad in their
own kitchen. Asking kids 2 to 3 simple questions at the beginning
of the game makes it possible to personalize the experience so
kids have more fun!
