Resúmen: Nowadays, food wastage and childhood obesity are major issues. They are not only related to published health and economic matters but are also associated with the exhaustion of the environment and available natural resources. Childhood obesity is one of the most serious public health challenges of the 21st century. Globally, in 2016 the number of overweight children under the age of five was estimated to be over 41 million. Overweight and obese children are likely to stay obese into adulthood and more likely to develop non-communicable diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular diseases at a younger age. In this context, the Green Deal and the “Farm to Fork” strategies introduced by the European Commission in 2020 support actions that can reduce food waste and change eating behavior to achieve a more sustainable society. One way to make children more aware of the environment and induce them to eat healthier food in the future is the introduction of educational games made by food waste through which they learn the importance of the environment and the health impact of the food they eat. This chapter describes an example of a food product designed for children, which, in the future, might help them to experience something educational and fun while taking care of a plant and watching it grow. It is also an opportunity to teach them to respect and care about the environment and follow a sustainable healthy diet when adults.
