Healthy eating and food types are the focus of this fun resource. The friendly narration helps kids build science vocabulary, and the interactive graphics will keep them engaged. One of the most interesting features is the ability to record photographs and audio of herb growth. This is a fundamental practice in science and a great way to spark curiosity. Unusual dietary choices -- such as veganism -- feature within the content and through a setting that lets a kid identify as vegetarian. Some opportunities to complete more concrete tasks could boost the app's learning potential, and a few navigational hints would ensure that kids don't miss any features; for example, an arrow to show that a swipe can change the plate's contents, hints to arrange the cheese flags, and a visual cue to show where the star-earning activities are would help kids along. Also, a few of the food terms have regional names, such as "pulses" for "legumes" and "fish fingers" for "fish sticks," which may confuse some kids. Aside from some very minor flaws, it's an excellent way to introduce important health topics to younger audiences.

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.
