  • The quest for the 7 kingdoms.

    The goal of our heroes is to discover the 7 Kingdoms of Nutrition and this is the big mission your kids will become involved in when they visit this website. In this magic kingdom they will be presented with games and daily challenges that test their knowledge about food groups and the animated series itself. As they advance through the series, different kingdoms will be revealed. While your kids are exploring this world, they will also be acquiring knowledge about nutrition and learning that a healthy diet makes you feel good.

    The Nutri Ventures Wheel of Nutrition divides the food groups into 7 families, each one corresponding to one of the 7 Kingdoms of Nutrition. As each kingdom is revealed, the heroes discover an enormous variety of foods and are fascinated by their taste, color and texture. But, more importantly still, they discover the Nutri-Power of food.
    Nutri-Power is the super power that each food bestows. All healthy food gives us specific Nutri-Powers that correspond to the Kingdom they belong to.

    Through the Nutri Ventures story your children will learn to value healthy food, associating it with the beneficial effects it has on the heroes when they face battles, win races and other challenges. Find out more here.

    There are also “Sub-Kingdoms” such as the Sugar Kingdom, the Kingdom of Fried Food, the Kingdom of Fats and the Salt Desert. These kingdoms appear in the story so that children can learn about the harmful effects of eating excessive amounts of certain foods.

    Click on each Kingdom and discover a new way of helping your kids enjoy a healthier diet.

    Note: The wheel of nutrition represents a very basic division of the major food groups to make it easier for children to learn the respective Nutri-Power of each food. However, it does not correspond exactly to the pyramid or nutrition wheel that is commonly used.

    (Season 5 )

    Percentage of daily Nutri-Power

    per child

    23% of a child’s daily Nutri-Powers comes from this Kingdom. This kingdom is the second most important, principally for its richness in fibers, water, vitamins and antioxidant minerals. The variety of colors, flavors, aromas and consistencies make it a fantastic ingredient to cook with. Soups are a great option. Salad or vegetables should occupy more than a third of the plate. When making sandwiches always try to add some kind of raw vegetables.

    Food of the Kingdom

    This group includes vegetables like carrots, garlic, onions, tomato, pumpkin, turnip, zucchini, cucumber, green and red pepper, green vegetables like lettuce, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, spinach,  green beans…

    It is governed by Guardian Green and his Guga Green.

    Guardian Green

    He is a bit too methodical and organized. As long as he runs the Green Kingdom, all the vegetables will be properly sown, monitored and harvested. He is a great connoisseur of ancient civilizations like the Mayas and their farming practices.

    Guga Green

    Off-the-Wall.
    This Guga has more than one screw loose. Forget logic. He is absolutely wacko.

    per Child

    This group also provides most of the important proteins for the body such as vitamin A, B12 and D, and healthy fats (omega-3). It represents around 2.5% of the daily Nutri-Powers  eaten by a child. This means an intake of around 120g of fish, or seafood per day (just slightly more than an adult’s palm).  Since seafood has a type of fat which is less healthy than that in fish it shouldn’t be eaten so frequently. Fish should be eaten daily when substituting meat.

    Food of the Kingdom

    The group of Fish and Sea food includes freshwater fish (eels, lampreys, trout, salmon, bass…)  saltwater fish (cod, tuna, sea bass, mackerel, sardine…), and seafood (shrimps, lobster, crab, squid, octopus…).

    (Episode 21 to 29 – Season 3 )

    Percentage of  Daily Nutri-Power

    per Child

    Only 4% of a child’s daily Nutri-Power come from this group. However it’s important that they get used to their flavor, color and consistency because they are foods rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals and are excellent for soups, salads and other dishes. At meals they can substitute or complement rice or potatoes. Just 3 soup spoons of  cooked legumes  per day are enough to  perfectly complement a child’s diet .

    Food of the Kingdom

    The group of legumes includes garbanzos, peas, lentils and all kinds of beans, such as kidney beans, soy beans, haricot beans.

    It is governed by Guardian Brown and her Guga Brown.

    Percentage of  Daily Nuti-Power

    per child

    In order to develop strong bones, 18% of the daily Nutri-Powers eaten by children should be provided by the food we can find in the White Kingdom. For a child of 7 to 8 who should eat around 1500 kcal per day this means a daily intake of:

    • 2 cups of milk; or
    • 3 solid yoghurts; or
    • 2 liquid yoghurts; or
    • 4 slices of cheese.

    Food of the Kingdom

    All dairy products including milk, yoghurt and, cheese .
    Butter also appears in the episodes of this kingdom. However, it is very different from  other dairy products, because of its fat content, making it a less balanced food in comparison to cheese and yoghurt.

    It is governed by Guardian White and her Guga White.

  • Kingdom of Sugar

    This is a bad Kingdom which hypnotizes people with the smell of candy. It is a kind of “Las Vegas” of colors, with rivers of chocolate and houses made from candy. But when people free themselves from the hypnosis they see that the reality is a disgusting, dirty Kingdom.

    Nutri-Power

    In the Kingdom of Sugar there is no food with Nutri-Power.
    (Episodes 8 to 11 –  Season 1)

    Food of the Kingdom

    The foods of the Kingdom of Sugar include soda pop, candy, gum, sweets, cakes, chocolate etc. They are very high in calories due to the high quantity of sugar and contain few important nutrients. When eaten in excess these foods can cause, among other things, dental decay, excess weight, obesity and an excess of fat and/or sugar in the blood. For this reason the consumption of these foods must be carefully limited. It is important to explain to children the harmful effects of consuming too many candies and fizzy drinks.
    There are many healthy foods which contain sugar such as fruit, dairy products, cereals, legumes, but these are foods balanced in nutrients, without any excesses, so they are not included in this group. The foods included here contain sugar only (or almost only).

    It is governed by the villain Candyman and his assistants, the Matrons.

    Kingdom of Fats

    The greasy Kingdom of Fats is built in layers up the sides of a mountain with the fat palace at the top. The inhabitants aren’t keen on exercising but adore fast food, that’s why they are all very fat and have to use a giant elevator to go up the hill and grease slides to get down it.

    Nutri-Power


    In the Kingdom of Fats there is no food with Nutri-Power.
    (Episodes 14 and 16 – Season 2)

    Food of the Kingdom

    In this kingdom there are good fats (unsaturated) and bad fats (saturated and cholesterol).  In the episodes of this series, fat appears in its most basic form with only negative effects. Normally this is what happens when we eat bad fats like butter and some oils  (coconut and palm oil), but also fat from meats and its derivatives  (smoked and sausage meat)  and dairy products ( goats’ cheese, for example).  Cakes and sweets made from butter and eggs also fall into in this category because they are rich in cholesterol and saturated fats. None of these foods are recommended on a daily basis but only for special occasions.
    Good fats include olive oil, spreads made from vegetable oil (margarine) and sunflower, peanut and soybean oil. These fats are used for cooking, seasoning and spreading on bread. The maximum daily amount should be 20g (4 teaspoons), which represents the equivalent of 2% of a child’s daily needs.

    It is governed by Fat Philip and his pet piglet Cracklings.

    Kingdom of Fried Food

    The air of this Kingdom reeks of Fried Food, since it was built on canals of boiling oil into which the inhabitants enjoy deep-frying whatever food takes their fancy. As a result of this unhealthy diet their brains have all been frizzled!

    Nutri-Power

    In the Kingdom of Fried Food there is no food with Nutri-Power.
    (Episode 15  – Season 2)

    Food of the Kingdom

    French fries, rissoles, croquettes, samosas, fried chicken, fried eggs, doughnuts… This kingdom includes the foods cooked with bad fats, or those which even though cooked with good fats have an excess of fat in their cooking. They have no beneficial effects on the body. However, they can obstruct the blood vessels and cause cells to function poorly when eaten frequently and in exaggerated quantities.

    It is governed by Fritz and his son Fritiz Junior.

    Salt Desert

    This is an arid, white desert, with stalagmites of salt as far as the eye can see.  It is inhabited by nomadic traders accustomed to living under the baking sun. They move about using wind power and enjoy betting on races where the contestants are giant worms.

    Nutri-Power

     

    In the Salt Desert there is no food with Nutri-Power
    (Episode 17 – Season 2)

    Food of the Kingdom

    Salt, olives, tinned food, sauces, sausages and smoked meat, pre-cooked meals and soups, butter/margarine.  These foods are all very salty even though in some of them you may not notice the flavor very much. The maximum recommended dose of salt per day is around 6 grams.  However, just with the salt that exists in even healthy food we eat more than half of this value! By basing your diet on pre-cooked or tinned meals, or abusing salt when you cook and season we can end up eating three times the amount of salt than we should eat. Herbs and spices are excellent substitutes. The earlier we get used to their flavors the more we appreciate them.

    It is governed by the wise Jomanda.

    Candyman

    He is the greediest villain ever!  He hypnotizes people with sugar and holds them forever in his dangerous and addictive Sugar Kingdom! Since they are hypnotized, everything they see is beautiful, even the disgusting sugary goo they eat.

    Matrons

    These cooks on ice cream cones enforce the law in Candyman’s Kingdom. Their rolling pins aren’t just for making candies, they’re also used for whacking all those who refuse to eat them!

    Jomanda

    She is the queen of the Salt Desert and proud leader of a nomadic tribe. Independent, diplomatic and brave, she is never intimidated by the hardships of the desert, much less by Alex Grand.
