I heard about these games targeted at people with diabetes in a seminar about games for learning I attended in my University. I thought I will share the links here.

These two are available free online. They focus on healthy eating/living habits. Some time back an exasperated parent of a child with Diabetes had asked how they can get through to the child about eating habits. So I thought these might be helpful
I tried the games and they feel juvenile to me but kids might like them.

This one was not free online. It is part of the glucometer and help the kid understand how to manage their condition by keeping tab on their blood glucose. It sounds interesting. It gives points for good numbers that the kid can use in the games etc.

I haven't gone through the whole database yet. will post links if I find anything useful/interesting.

These are a lot of fun! I enjoyed myself probably longer than I should have. I like the build a healthy plate one. Try them. Share them with your kids, even if they are not diabetic. Teach them good habits now.
