Why we love this app
Eat-And-Move-O-Matic is a fantastic app for elementary school students. Children can figure out how many calories are in common food items, and how much time they would have to spend walking, swimming, or biking to burn those calories. Full of interesting facts and simple illustrations, Eat-And-Move-O-Matic is the perfect way to help children make healthy choices.
What it teaches and how it works
This app provides specific information on how many calories are in foods like a cheese pizza, grilled chicken sandwich, and apple to name a few. Once you choose a food item you can match it up to different activities. For example, a fried eggroll is 189 calories which is the same amount you’d burn by 57 minutes of light biking, 44 minutes of softball, or one hour and one minute on a trampoline. For each food item and activity children can tap on the screen to learn more about the pros and cons of their choices.
Why your kid won't be able to put it down
Besides being a great conversation starter, Eat-And-Move-O-Matic will help children think about choosing healthy foods and how to get moving. It's colorful, easy to use, and intuitive. The message comes across right away, and curious children will be drawn in by the amount of permeations that can be made with this eating and moving machine.
