What you need

  1. Foods of the World Quiz - download resource
  2. Small prize for the winner (optional)


Quizzes are fantastic for encouraging people to use their cognitive skills in a fun way.  This activity can get competitive at times, but reassure people that it doesn’t matter if they get the answers wrong. It’s all about getting the grey matter working!

This Foods of the World quiz is sure to get your mouth watering. Have a go at guessing where these foods are from all around the world. 

Play the quiz just for fun – or keep score and award the winner with a small prize.  The quiz is available as a question sheet, in case anyone would like to do the quiz on their own first. Then you can share the answers with them afterwards.

The Activity

  1. Gather the group together or sit with the person if one to one, or give the person the questions sheet if they would like to do this on their own
  2. Either read the food aloud to the group or each person in turn
  3. Ask them to guess what the answer might be, some may be well known, some may need lots of guesses
  4. Congratulate every answer, even if it’s wrong, as every attempt is a good brain workout
  5. If you’re playing competitively, keep scores and award the winner a small prize
  6. Spend time at the end, and enjoy talking about any foods from the quiz that are favourites or if there are any you have never heard of but would like to try
