Summer Camp is for parents and kids to work together, exploring the world around you with activities that will take you outside, inside, and as far as your imagination will go! Learn more by reading the Welcome to KinderTown Summer Camp! blog post.
While we are focused on staying active with our activities, another important component is maintaining a healthy diet. These apps present a fun way to think about being active and eating healthy!
Eat and Move-O-Matic
This app was developed to encourage your children to develop and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle. The app is simple in nature and shows two rolling bars that display a type of food, and then an equivalent activity that would be needed to burn that food off. For example, if you eat a slice of pepperoni pizza,you can burn it off by biking for 1 hour and 40 minutes. The app includes pro tips at the bottom, as well, “pepperoni is high in fat and calories. Choose low-fat meat instead like chicken or ham and add veggies to the top.” The app is free and appropriate for children ages 5 and up.
