Unfortunately though, children will often rail against mum’s methods which can make healthy living a little difficult in some families!
Luckily, an interactive app has been developed which may make breakfast battles and dinner-time disputes a thing of the past! Planet Munchie is an interactive game for kids which encourages them to make healthy choices and rewards them on that basis!
Interestingly, the app isn’t specifically food-based, so if a child takes up a hobby such as swimming, this activity can be recorded in the device and validated by the parent, meaning that every effort the child makes towards a healthy lifestyle is recognised.
The app, which has been endorsed by the Nutrition and Health Foundation, has been nominated for an APPY award and shortlisted for the GlaxoSmithKline APP of the year.
If encouraging your children to ditch the junk is proving difficult, this could be the perfect solution for you and yours!
