Dalhousie University Researchers Launch Kid-Friendly Healthy Eating App

A team of researchers from Dalhousie University launched a new app aimed at getting kids to eat more fruits and vegetables. The app is called “Froogie” and is designed to help families track their daily intake based on the Canadian Food Guide.

Froogie is designed for children and families to track their daily servings fruit and vegetables in a fun and interactive way. Froogies are animated fruit/vegetable characters, which help you track your daily servings.

Users are rewarded with the unlocking of a new Froogie each week. Reminders and notifications of tips appear regularly to encourage families to live life on the veg!

Froogie is available as a free download from the App Store. The app requires any device running iOS 8.0 or later and contains no in-app purchases.
