Imperial College Road

Play the game to see if you can spot ultra-processed food or get creative and draw your favourite homecooked meal to add to our growing collection.

Food is central to helping our mental and physical health flourish. Chat about food with scientists from Imperial College London’s School of Public Health and find out about how ultra-processed foods could be impacting your health. Put your newfound knowledge to the test by playing a game and try to get on the leaderboard.

Nothing tastes as good as the food from home, and these meals are often the healthiest too. To celebrate this, we want you to share your national or favourite dish with us. You can draw, write, or describe your favourite dish and add it to our growing collection.
