Good message about eating veggies, but so-so delivery.

Food Fight! - An Interactive Book by Glenn Melenhorst has some charming elements, but ultimately doesn't stand up to the best interactive book apps -- especially with its $1.99 price tag. The story's message that vegetables can actually be tasty and shouldn't be avoided simply because they are vegetables is laudable, particularly with the obesity epidemic, but the app's interactive elements are just so-so, generally made up of brief sound effects and minor animations. Being able to zoom in on the story's pictures is nice, but serves little purpose other than to better search for hidden stars, which unlock a less than impressive locked page at the end of the book. The app is fun, but it is not great when compared to some of the other excellent storybooks available in the iTunes store.

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.
