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.

Great way to get kids thinking about healthy choices

While very simplistic, these little games might start kids thinking about healthy choices. The games are fun and educational. I think it's best for kids ages 5-10. Older kids will likely be bored.
