The White House Asks about Healthy Kid Apps
Posted by Kori Schulman on March 10, 2010 at 03:02 PM EST
This afternoon the First Lady announced the Apps for Healthy Kids Challenge -- a contest with the USDA to challenge professional and amateur developers to come up with games that incorporate nutritional information and promote healthy living. From dance video games to nutrition mobile applications, we’re challenging designers to come up with the next big idea to make healthy living fun. The App Challenge is just one of the innovative ways that the First Lady is working to help kids lead active, healthy lives and end childhood obesity within a generation, as part of the nationwide Let’s Move! campaign.
Developer or not, we want to hear your ideas. This week, the White House is teaming up with GOOD to ask:
What kind of healthy kid app would you like to see developed?
Tell us on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. Some of the most interesting responses will be featured on the White House blog and on the GOOD blog, so stay tuned. And in case you missed it, take a look at your responses to last week’s question about a 21st century education.
Learn more about the challenge and submit an application by visiting AppsforHealthyKids.com.
Please note that the username, personal identifier or icon affiliated with responses may be posted.
