Supermarket Mania

Supermarket Mania is a fun interactive "board" game (based on the show Fizzy's Lunch Lab) from PBS kids. Students pick a player and navigate through a supermarket while completing various nutrition challenges that are also language-based.

Language Lens:
  • Nutrition, food groups, and supermarket layouts are important category-based topics that also involve sequencing and cause-effect.
  • This game has some engaging, timed (but reasonably so) activities in which students sort items into abstract categories such as whether the food came from a farm or factory or interpret nutrition labels, a great functional reading task.


  1. Cute game, but my son would hate the timed parts and the kid trying to catch you to put junk food in your cart. Too stressful for him!

  2. I think my son will like this game.
