About

We Want To Produce The Healthy Eating Game "Two Bites" to help parents get their kids to develop healthy eating habits and learn about nutrition!

Have you ever had to battle a fussy eater to try a new food?

Have you ever seen a child fixated on only a few foods, refusing to eat anything else?

Have you read about the growing childhood obesity epidemic in the United States?

Do you know that kids learn through play?  Did you know that you can get kids to do just about anything you want if you make a game out of doing it?  The "Two Bites" card game is all about getting kids ages 3 and up to take 'two bites' of each kind of food served at meal time.  "Two Bites" encourages kids to try new foods, to learn about nutrition, and to develop healthy eating habits.  Obesity is an epidemic in the United States and the childhood obesity rates are climbing at an alarming rate.

"Two Bites" aims to get kids to try new foods and eat healthy foods to avoid childhood obesity.

The game is played with cards so that it doesn't take up a lot of room on the table, and the cards are given as 'rewards' to the child when he or she takes a bite.  Point cards are also awarded for trying new foods and for correctly answering questions about nutrition and healthy eating habits.

We created this game to get our own 'fussy eater' to eat something besides the chicken nuggets and french fries that we had been fighting over for 3 years, since he turned 2.  It worked so well, that we took it to his daycare center and tested it there, where it was so well received that we were asked to make it available to buy.

We looked for an artist to do the illustrations and had a friend help us design the website.  We did the proper market research and discovered that parents not only would buy this game, but kept asking us when it would be available.

How The Game Is Played

The game can be played by up to 6 players, and the method of play has been kept very simple so that it can be played by children as young as 3, and so that 'variations' can be played as children get older and more advanced in comprehension skills and ideas.

The game has colorful food group cards for each of the 5 food groups, a desert card, a trivia question card, and point cards, all held in a recipe box. On his or her turn, the  Chef asks the child what he or she wants to take a bite of, and once the child eats the food, the Chef doles out a card for that food group. 

Each child has to collect two cards of each food group served to qualify for dessert.  The point cards are also given out for trying new foods and answering trivia questions about food and nutrition, and the child with the most points 'wins' the right to pick what's for dessert.

What We Plan To Do With "Two Bites"

We plan to produce the cards and boxes, right here in the USA, then assemble them in a small workshop, and ship them out.  We will market the game using online marketing strategies such as press releases, articles, guest blogging, pay per click advertising, and possibly an affiliate program.

What Will Do With The Money We Raise

The money raised will go toward the first production run of the game, allowing us to meet the 2,000 unit requirement of the printers of the cards and the boxes.  Any over funding will be used to invest into additional marketing and advertising, and to hire people to assemble the game and ship it from our workshop.

    The first expansion pack of "Two Bites" with Condiment Caddy- This is the first of a series of planned expansion packs, allowing the game and the method of play, to mature as your kids mature. Two Bites was designed so that a 3 year old could play, but as children grow older and more mature, there are many more ways to get them involved in healthy eating habits, including, helping with meal planning and preparation. The first expansion pack is full of meal planning cards that you can use to get your kids involved with the planning of the meal. Studies have shown that when children assist in the planning and preparation of meals, they are more likely to eat the foods they helped create.
