Introducing the Snack Shack challenge!

Here’s the scoop – kids (recommended ages 9-13) can now hang out at the Snack Shack, a cool destination in the world of Whyville and play two exciting games that test their knowledge about making healthy snack choices:

  • Label Lingo – Kids can learn about the Nutrition Facts label and answer challenge questions about the Nutrition Facts label on different snacks to win Whyville clams (money).
  • Snack Sort – Kids can use the label to compare and choose foods and drinks from a kitchen pantry just like theirs at home and race to win before runs out! Kids can also play this game with their friends and classmates who are also citizen of Whyville.

These games can help kids learn healthy eating habits and make healthy snack choices in the Snack Shack and in the real world – choices that can keep them feeling great!
