At his school they played the game and he would be absolutely mortified and he would come home to me crying. I think he has ptsd or something. he said "the food crushing was so scary 😭" REMOVE THIS GAME OR ELSE I WILL CALL 911

SMASH YOUR FOOD is a fun way to get kids to think about their food choices. The smashing videos are engaging and will get kids talking about nutrition, and the tips provide good suggestions for making healthy food choices. However, the game does not provide much in the way of actual content. To fully benefit from the presented information, kids should have some background knowledge of nutrition labels and the components of a well-balanced diet. It would be great to see a nutrition chart or pyramid and some brief lessons about protein, saturated and unsaturated fats, cholesterol, and different kinds of carbohydrates.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
