Abstract:
Abstract There is a trend in Indonesian people to shift their food pattern from traditional into high fat and low fiber fast food. Low level of knowledge about nutrition and balanced food, unhealthy dietary pattern, and sedentary activity were assumed as the main contributing factors for the increment of overweight and obesity in Indonesia. Childhood and adolescence are critical periods for health and development as the physiological need for nutrients increases and the consumption of a diet of high nutritional quality is particularly important. Eating habits, lifestyle and behavior patterns are established during this period that may persist throughout adulthood. Patterns of eating have a significant influence on health and well-being. This review will deal with the calories needs of children between the ages of 7 – 8 years with simulation game as a learning media. For the purpose of this evaluation a new, more complete, paper-based questionnaire was constructed. The particular questionnaire, which elicited both qualitative and quantitative data. The questions corresponded to the following eight dimensions: perceived usefulness, ease of use, ease of learning, satisfaction screen, terminology and system information, system capabilities, and overall reaction to the software. The results indicated that the students’ opinion about the game was positive, and suggest that with some extensions the game could be used as an effective learning tool. Finally, some corresponding conclusions and future improvements to the game are being discussed on the basis of the findings. Keywords: calories, children, simulation game.
