This app for children aged 3-6 has been developed in order to help children become more active and aware of their own health and what better character to guide children through this app than Kids’ CBC star, “Bo on the Go”.
This app features three educational games including:
- selecting healthy foods from foods that are not so good to eat
- sorting foods into their particular food groups to help the chefs prepare their magic potions
- selecting foods in order to create a delicious and balanced meal for the penguin’s birthday party
While I was excited to hear Bo’s upbeat and cheerful voice guiding me through the app, I was disappointed to not hear the “Bo on the Go” theme song! That song is so catchy and fun, I do think that it would add some excitement somewhere within the app.
The verbal instructions during the app are perfect for young children who have yet to master the skill of reading. I also like how the player can tap on various objects and Bo will tell you what it is to help you in the game.
The games are set up in a way that are fun and educational. They have an element of creativity built into them as well, which is always fun.
There are fun sound effects when you put something in the wrong place, nothing too discouraging which is nice to see.
I believe this app is set up perfectly for young children to learn more about nutrition and healthy eating! I definitely recommend it.
