Immediate Preparation (5-7 minutes): Divide the board into 3 columns and headline them A, B and C.  Divide the group also into 3 teams: the first one represents the vitamin A, the second - B and the third - C. The players should find as many names of food containing these 'vitamins' as possible, i.e. the corresponding letters.

How to Play. When the teams are ready, their 'secretaries' come to the board and take turns to write their words in the collumns. If the same word occurs in different lists, it is conted off to the team, which wrote it earlier! After all the columns are completed, the teams gets 1 point for each given letter. The winner is the team to get the most points.
