Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

This digital story is a kid-friendly way to teach an important message about healthy living, but it misses an opportunity to fully engage kids with assessment or gameplay. Unlike in Monster Heart Medic -- a similar type of app by the same developer -- kids do not have a lot of meaningful opportunities to interact with the story. Along they way, they can tap on things such as books, food, and items in Emily's room, but the level of interaction is minimal. The story does convey an important message about healthy food choices, but kids don't have a chance to apply what they learned, so they may not retain much of the information. The addition of some post-story quizzes or mini-games, along with narration to go with the on-screen text, could help immerse kids more deeply in the learning experience.

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.
