Is It Any Good?

If kids can wait patiently for each game to load, they'll have some fun working through the activities and get inspired to go outside and play those same activities themselves. Some moves don't respond quickly to gestures, which is also frustrating. The overall message is great -- teaching kids to choose healthy foods to fuel their bodies and encouraging them to be active, and it's great that the games are all activities kids can re-create themselves outside. The concepts of adding their own pictures to the Healthy Me Chart and of seeing themselves stretching are really neat and personalize the game experience for kids. In a likely scenario, kids will play with the app a bit, get frustrated with the slow transitions, and ideally take their new ideas and go play outside.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
