    We developed a very interesting board Mobile Game to teach the concepts of nutrition to families and would like to make a Mobile App Game Development but we have no experience in this field.

    You can find developers to make a game for you via Unity Connect. Cost can vary a lot depending on the complexity, whether it is single-player or multiplayer, whether the art assets are already done, etc. But as a very general guideline, expect to spend somewhere between $5k and $10k for quality work on something like this.

    It entirely depends on the amount of work involved, and how much value a developer places on that amount of work.

    I recommend browsing the game postmortems on gamasutra (and wherever else you can find them) to get an idea how these things go. Some will list budgets, schedules, team size...

    https://www.gamasutra.com/features/postmortem/

    And as you're talking mobile, this book has very good advice for those who are looking to contract out app development. I always ask "I have an idea for an app" people to read it so I don't have to explain Apple's app review process and guidelines and how to scope out the project, design for mobile, etc.
