Reviewers Comments: This resource has the format of a traditional BINGO game, with a change in the way the numbers are called. A facilitator will select a number from a pool, but each number called will also come with a health or nutrition related tip to be read to the players.

Each CD comes with instructions, an instructor checklist, 40 BINGO boards, printable chips for the game, and six sets of BINGO tips. BINGO tip sets are designed to complement the content from ENAFS Healthy Living modules and focus on food groups, nutrition, diabetes, hypertension, or fall prevention. Tips are generally geared toward older adults. The tie-in to MyPlate comes with the bingo chips, which are MyPlate icons and the categories which are separated into food groups (e.g., B = grains, I = vegetables, N = dairy, G = fruits, O = protein foods). The tips that come with each BINGO number are generally not directly from any MyPlate education series, especially for the sets that focus on diseased states/falls, however many can be used to teach about MyPlate. There are some statistics included as tips, which aren’t referenced, and tips specific to the state of Florida that could be changed for users outside of the state.

This tool can be used, as designed with ENAFS Healthy Living Modules 1, 3, 4 and 6 (note: ENAFS Healthy Living Program Module 1: Unique Nutritional Needs of Older Adults and ENAFS Healthy Living Program Module 5: Healthy Eating for Elders are listed in our database). It can also easily be used as a stand-alone teaching tool.
