Menu Map

How do the many dishes we eat impact our bodies and the planet? Steer your way through the four islands of the Menu Map. Watch out for dangerous traps to your body and to the planet. Don't let those Warning and Runaway foods touch your plate! Find your way to happiness by filling your plate with foods from the Superboost and Sidekick islands. Use your menu cards to sort on the Menu Map between the Islands! In the beginning use the Menu Map Legend and Answer Key to assist you but later use a watch to time yourself to see how fast you can sort the deck or keep a tally to find out which player sorts the most cards correctly!
