Thank you for your interest in the Nourish Interactive, Inc, a free online nutrition education program. The Nourish Interactive, Inc. takes the latest USDA American Food Guidelines and teaches children about these guidelines via an interactive video game.
After signing up for a free account, you'll gain full access to the complete game that individually tracks your child’s progress. It provides a fun and convenient way for your child to learn about nutrition and exercise at his or her own pace. Parents will receive progress reports as the child completes a level.
