|Reviewers Comments: ||The Farmers Market Game can be a fun way to reinforce healthy eating habits for the whole family. The two-sided game board turns one game into two different ones, with one game board more appropriate for younger players and the other for more advanced players. While instructions are available in Spanish and English, the game boards are in English only.
Although the game board includes some facts about fruits and vegetables, and positive eating habits, this information is not incorporated into the game play. It is possible that children playing the game alone will not look closely at the board or take away any new information about healthy eating. For children to learn from this game, it is important for adults or educators to speak with them during play about the different fruits and vegetables, how they grow, and why they are good for us.
