I ran into an interesting study published in a peer-reviewed journal called Obesity. In this study, researchers at Cornell University looked at the eating behaviors of people at all-you-can-eat Chinese buffets. Their goal was to see if eating habits differed based on BMI. As you can imagine, their habits did differ extensively.
If we take what the researchers at Cornell learned from this study and turn it around, we have a concise list of healthy eating habits used by people with normal to low BMI. Perhaps making some changes on not just what you eat but how you eat it can keep your BMI in check. Here’s the full list:
If the latest study that showed school lunches are linked to obesity didn’t convince you how important lunchtime is for a child’s health, I’m not sure what will. Today we have yet another creative way to take a typical school lunch and flip it into something health and tasty. Presenting chicken nuggets, the healthy way!
All of this blogging about our newest health game V for Vegetable made me think about a really pretty poster we created a while back for The Woodlands Children’s Museum that talks about picky eating and how to deal with it. After all, many childhood picky eaters don’t like vegetables. I realized that we never really shared this helpful information with you. Now is as good a time as any!
So without further ado, here are some ways that you can encourage your picky eater to try something new, like a new vegetable.

In my last post about in-game bonuses I mentioned that V for Vegetable is not just a new game because it’s our first action adventure game but because it’s also got tons of fun extras. Besides upgrade abilities for Runner Bean Bunny, you also get to display all the Colossal Carrots you’re able to capture in each level.
How many carrots could possibly be out there, you ask? Did you know they have a whole Carrot Museum in the UK? Did you know there are white, even purple carrots?
Upon capturing the Colossal Carrot and returning it to Runner Bean Bunny’s garden, you get the opportunity to display your prized possessions. The image here just shows three of the many carrots you can collect. They’re huge, they’re big, they’re colossal, and they’re coming soon!
V for Vegetable is not just a new game because it’s our first action adventure game. It’s also got tons of fun extras. For example, between levels, you can use in-game points to purchase upgrades for our hero, Runner Bean Bunny, in the next level.
Upon capturing the Colossal Carrot in each level, you must exit the garden labyrinth and collect as many bonus carrots as you can. When you finally escape with carrot in hand, you can spend these bonus carrots on upgrades. Here are some of the cool bonuses to expect:
Escaping the Hippobros is going to be so exciting and so much fun! We can’t wait!
