Ration Roulette is essentially a strategy game. You aim to please your customers by meeting their caloric requirements while effectively rationing out food in various quantities.
This game strives to teach both rationing of calories, how many calories are in certain types of food, and approach a better understanding of balancing nutrition.
Specifically, the game rewards players for (and ultimately encourages):
Increasing fruit and vegetable consumption vs. consumption of less healty foods.
Making food group education fun.
Identifying and consuming proper portion size.
Increasing foods with high nutrition value and decreasing amounts of solid fats and added sugars ("extra" calories), and decreasing amounts of sodium.
