Foodie!

By: BaileyCherish

Game story:  You have been made fun of and called fat even though you aren’t. After not eating for a year, you have made friends that want to help you start eating healthy again. It is possible that it may take you several tries to get past “attacks,” but with your newfound determination, you’ll be able to do it!

Objectives: You mainly want to get to the end, in which there is a coach that is proud of you for not falling back into your eating disorder comfort. You go throughout the four levels collecting food and coins to reach a "full day's meal."

Audience: Everyone who has ever thought of having an eating disorder, does have an eating disorder, or knows someone who does.

Team: Cherish, Aubree and Joe

Health lesson:  Just because of what people say to you shouldn’t make you feel as if your weight isn’t good enough. You’re perfect the way you are, and developing an eating disorder is not something healthy.

 Fact One:

In the U.S., eating disorders are more common than Alzheimer’s disease: Five to 10 million people have eating disorders compared to four million with Alzheimer’s disease.

Fact Two:

"If Barbie were an actual woman, she would be 5'9" tall, have a 39" bust, an 18" waist, 33" hips and a size 3 shoe," Slayen wrote in the Huffington Post. "She likely would not menstruate... she'd have to walk on all fours due to her proportions." Barbie is not someone to look at and want to be. She wouldn't be as pretty in real life as she is in doll form.

Fact Three:

Because eating disorders involve so many complex factors, attempting to tackle an eating disorder on your own is not advised.
