We all know that teaching children about food and cooking is essential, but it can be hard to find fun games for kids.
There are millions of games on the internet, but most of them have advertisements or branding, making them unsuitable for use in a school setting.
CulinarySchools.org offers a collection of over 100 online games explicitly designed with schools and teachers in mind. Their games cover food safety, nutrition, farming, cooking techniques like stir-frying and sauteing, how to make restaurant reservations, and more! Their team has carefully crafted each game with your student’s best interests at heart so you can feel confident that they’re learning valuable skills while having fun playing educational video games online!
Kids often have a hard time understanding the importance of food, farming, and cooking.

What are some of my favorite games?
Food Delivery Rush
Food Delivery Rush players avoid items lying in the road and other drivers while trying to make food deliveries. Hitting anything causes the player to lose a life. Players start with three lives, and the car begins to smoke as it is wrecked. This game is like a modern graphical version of classic APB’s old arcade, though one is playing a food delivery driver instead of a police officer.
In this image, the food delivery car is yellow. I am trying to navigate my way through obstructions and other vehicles. The vehicles are not stationary, making the game so entertaining. To maneuver, use the arrow keys on the computer keyboard.
Scooby-Doo and Guess Who Midnight Munchies
Scooby-Doo and Guess Who Midnight Munchies is a game where you throw Scooby Snacks at Scooby-Doo. Click or tap anywhere on the screen and pull back to set your shot strength and angle.
We all know how much Scooby loves his Scooby snacks! You need to shoot the snack over obstacles to Scooby-Doo in this game. You don’t need to land it directly in his mouth, and it can bounce or roll, and it still counts. That is easier said than done! Use your mouse to direct the treat and pull the mouse, which creates a larger arrow and more propulsion to the treat.
There are so many great games to keep you and your children entertained for hours on end.
