Food - Educational Scavenger Hunts

Our food educational scavenger hunts are intended to teach yourself or your kids about different foods. Learning about food is one of the best ways to eat healthy and stay healthy. However, as with food, all of our scavenger hunts are not targeted towards health.

Pick a scavenger hunt and start learning about your food! We have the following food scavenger hunts.

Fast food has been a favorite among children almost dating all the way back to the opening of the first McDonald’s restaurants. You can hear it now in your sleep, can’t you? The incessant calls from the backseat of the car of tiny voices crying out, ‘Oh, can we please go to McDonald’s?’ (or Wendy’s or Burger King, etc). And while the food may be considered something of a treat to the little ones, there’s a host of opportunity within them to play some games, uncover some history, and have fun in the process.

Food scavenger hunts can be a wonderful way to teach children that different kinds of food exists beyond soda, chocolate, and Cocoa Puffs cereal (and let’s not forget macaroni and cheese). Many food banks do canned goods scavenger hunts and you can take this example with you as you move through the list.
