Education is the key

It is clear that the obesity issue in Australia is in part due to a lack of knowledge around which foods are, and which foods are not, healthy for the human body. The only way to address this issue is to educate, which is one of the goals of this game.

We see hundreds of children each year in our Healthy Weight Service facing a life of disease and early mortality. Children as young as 7 get type 2 diabetes – an aggressive disease with early diabetes complications. This game is only a small part of the effort to stop the most common childhood disease we now face “obesity”.
