In this game app, kids create a mini avatar of themselves. They are responsible for the care, feeding, exercising and resting of their "mini-me" which will morph into a “mighty-me” when given a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Time to update how we approach home-ec and phy ed.
If we combine physical education and home economics into a program about Healthy Living that emphasises family participation, exercise, nutrition and health, we educate and establish healthy living
We've confused what we need with what we want in regards to our diet.

You've heard of date night or game night. At our house we have KIDS COOK night. They prepare a menu, we shop as a family, we cook as a family and we eat as a family. Whatever weird and wacky thing they come up with, we enjoy creating and experiencing together. The benefits go beyond nutrition to researching, planning, shopping, creating and delivering a healthy meal.
We all learn better by DOING. I applaud ideas that place kids in the role of Chef for the day!
