Several games and educational tools have been developed to raise awareness of the benefits of fruit and vegetables produced in the garden.
Most of them are based on memory games, whose cards can be used for different learning sessions depending on the age (the cards can be used hidden or face up for example)
For the youngest children, the game is based on the recognition of fruit and vegetables (knowing the name of the fruit, recognising it open and closed, classifying them by colour and size).
In elementary school, these visuals are used to fill in a food pyramid to learn about daily nutritional needs and the different food families.
Other tools have been developed for secondary school students and also for adults, that can be used during their medical visits to better understand the link between health and food. A series of cards and posters present the nutritional value of some thirty foods and the daily needs of the human body in order to stay healthy.
Another series of tools presents the impact of an unbalanced diet on health and the means to remedy it by adopting a healthy diet.
A whole section on infant and pregnant women’s health has also been developed in French and English for distribution in West and Southern Africa.
