We bought this game for our 8yr old after a friend recommended it. This game is fun and at the same time teaches kids about healthy eating in a fun way. A little pricey when compared to similar card games but it's made in the USA unlike 99% of toys that are made in China. If you have a 7+ yrs old, you should buy it! We received it last night and played over 10 times.

This is a modern game and I've never seen anything quite like it! The game simulates the formation of a healthy meal with cards and junk (food) cards are meant to be eliminated as the game progresses...You have a "Q" card that has 3 different functions and each function has to be used wisely if you want to win! There's also a "Restart" card that acts as a "shocker" card for someone who's about to win by having him start all over with new cards. It's not easy to explain if you haven't played. Try it with your children!

My wife and I had fun competing against our kids to prepare the healthiest meal... that doesn?t happen every day! Although, one of the kids did suggest he should be able to trade in a junk food card for real junk food! I wasn?t clear about some of the rules but I reached out to the company, they responded almost immediately, got me on track, and said they?d be adding those instructions to their next print. Gotta love that type of customer service.

Had the opportunity to play this game with my 8 year old a few moments ago. Im glad she's all informed about the different food groups! Now if she would only EAT her veggies - this game would be the BEST EVER! The only thing I would change is to put some indication on the corners of the cards, like real playing cards, as when you are holding them they are little tough to have to spread out to view. Love the 'Restart' card...really ads some intrigue to it.

Seriously! This is a modern game. By "modern" I mean the concept and the way it is played. I did a little reseearch on the company that made it and they seem to do software and web development, and this card game being their first game in this category.The cards are colorful and the little one that I bought it for loves them. Besides, Qetchup is a fun name for kids!!!

I purchased this product to give to my son?s classroom. It is a wonderful game that makes the idea of healthy eating fun. Having kids be familiar to good eating and making a game out it is a wonderful concept. The cards are colorful and that makes it appealing to young eyes remember. We played it many times before he was able to let it go and let his class give it a try. A+++

I bought this card game as a fun day care activity. I have several preschoolers and they all seem to really enjoy playing this. Every mother knows how difficult it is to get kids to eat so I thought this was a very clever way of teaching healthy eating. Very quick delivery (way sooner than Amazon's estimate).

This game is so much fun! One of my students brought it in for a game day. All the kids wanted to play. My students are second graders and they understood how to play! It was a new and exciting game. I am adding it to my game bin!!!

Finally a cool and fun card game after many years. The three functions of the "Q" card need to be applied wisely. Be ready for argument + a good time.
