Pros: Lots of positivity around a big variety of fruits and vegetables.

Cons: Repetitive activities; limited real-world application.

Bottom Line: Could work as a simple way to encourage food positivity and exploration, but for real-world application, teachers will need to create clear connections to off-screen experiences.

How Can I Teach with This Tool?

Teach Your Monster: Adventurous Eating is an app and web-based game that walks kids through the experience of feeding their cartoon monster fruits and vegetables. Teachers can easily use the game as a quick, accessible activity for filling down time or as an independent learning station activity. Or, even better, teachers could go through the sensory explorations as a whole class and build on them with discussions around the five senses. Teachers could even supplement by providing actual samples of the fruits and vegetables for students to smell, feel, see, and ultimately taste. Because the activities are repetitive, they may work best in small doses.

Overall Rating

The monsters are fun and the songs are catchy. But formulaic and repetitive activities might limit how much students want to return.


Activities encourage kids to think about exploring fruits and veggies with all five senses, though the learning potential stays superficial.


It's quick to get started, and you can track progress through unique user profiles. The extension to off-screen sensory exploration of fruits and vegetables is unclear.
