Jennifer D. is here to let you know about a fun app for preschool- and young elementary-aged kids. She received a code for review purposes and was compensated to write this post.
This app offers two different — and equally useful — features. One is a menu feature which shows you how to make fun fruit creations to entice and encourage your children to eat healthy snacks. I loved the pear mouse (pictured above) that I found on their Pinterest board. If you like those kinds of ideas, I encourage you to follow them there and/or on Facebook.
The other is a puzzle game. See how it works by watching the video below. It’s advertised for 3 – 8 year olds, and I think that’s a good range. It’s not quite as simple as it looks in the video. My 15-year-old daughter thought it was cool and wanted us to try to make some of them after I showed the app to her!
Exposing kids to different foods and helping them appreciate and enjoy healthy snacks like fruit is important. If a fancy presentation does this and makes food more fun, I’m all for it.
The recipes (building instructions and ingredients) are accessed by the Mom’s Recipes button, and the puzzles are found in the Menu section. In this age of “Pinterest parenting” (Did I just make up that term? Should I trademark it??), and using devices to occupy and educate our kids, the Kids Fun Food app is a perfect combination of both of these trends.
