Travel the World and Learn About Nutritional Guidelines in "Pick Your Plate! A Global Guide to Nutrition"

The Smithsonian Science Education Center recently launched the Spanish-language game, "Pick Your Plate! Guía Global de Nutrición!" This game educates players about dietary guidelines by highlighting the food, currency, music, and nutritional guidelines from eight different countries across the world. Students are invited to virtually travel and eat their way across the world as they are exposed to a variety of food facts from each country. From tubers in Benin to avocados in Australia, learn why each food item is significant to its respective nation through "Pick Your Plate!" and beyond.
