Leon and Katie have arrived to put your healthy eating knowledge to the test. The game takes you on a trip through town with lots of food to choose from as you travel.

Eat up the healthy stuff to bump up your points and don’t forget to dodge those fatty, sugary treats such as hamburgers and chocolate bars. The healthier you get the faster you become, and the more treats you scoff the slower you’ll go.

There are currently two levels to complete with lots of obstacles to overcome such as pensioners in mobility buggies, a pesky set of frogs to cross in level 1 and a giant hotdog to dodge in level 2.

Good luck on your healthy eating quest and remember the faster you complete the levels, the more likely you are to snag a place on the high score board. So make sure you have a go!
