Food Trivia

Trivia Questions are our favorite! No matter if we are playing Teen trivia, or using our 4th grade trivia questions, the kids and I are always trying to guess the right answer. We absolutely love these food trivia questions, because who doesn’t love to learn about food! 

Learning interesting facts about food has sparked countless conversations. I love the time I get to spend with my family when we get together and play trivia! It’s such a simple, easy-to-learn game which makes it versatile. You can play for any length of time too! Whether you only have 5 minutes to play or a whole hour, this is the game for you.

Why I Love Trivia

Trivia is a fun way to learn new things! I have always found that learning in a fun environment helps me remember things better! Trivia is the perfect combination between a great game and a learning activity! 

You can learn more about serious academic things like geography, states, and National Parks. Or you can go the less practical route and test your knowledge of anything from sports trivia to Harry Potter to Halloween trivia

Trivia will help your kids memory skills and is a great way for them to cooperate with one another as they figure out the right answer.

There are even blank trivia cards included in this pack.You and your family can come up with your very own trivia questions to stump your fellow players! 

How To Play Food Trivia

Food Trivia is a very simple game! There’s no set up or take down. All you need is to print off our great list of food trivia questions and you’re ready to go! 

Trivia can be played casually by simply asking 1 or more people the question on the card and seeing if they can guess the answer. 

You can also play competitively by playing game show style with a larger group of people (4 or more) and keeping track of who can guess the right answers. 1 point is awarded for every right answer. 

When playing this as a family game night activity the winner can choose next week’s activity or the movie for the night. Whatever your stakes you’ll have a blast! 

How Can I Make This Game More Fun?

  • Whiteboards and dry erase markers are the way to go if you’re going to play game show style! Have everyone write down their guesses. Flip your boards over when everyone’s done. 
  • Using cardstock and laminating your cards will help them last a lot longer. 
  • Do you want to become a trivia wiz? Start learning different, interesting facts about the things you enjoy learning about. You’ll wow your friends and family with the things you learn. You can encourage curiosity in your kids by learning new things yourself. 
  • Let your kids ask you these questions. My kids love it when I get stumped. It happens more often than I’d like to admit. We have gotten some great family time with one another this way.
