Families can use the app to:
. Set an age range for the child, from 2-14, so that appropriate daily serving sizes are used
. Receive tips and reminders on eating vegetables and fruit as part of their daily routine and habits
. Choose which Froogie characters to work towards
. Record and review progress in a daily log
. Work towards a reward – the `Super Froogie’ bowl
The app was developed by the patient organisation, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada with the Canadian Institute of Health Research and the Dalhousie Healthy Populations Institute (HPI).
. Draws on a decade of research at the Institute into how diet and physical activity behaviours impact on youth health
. Works towards a recommended ratio of 60% vegetable to 40% fruit in daily servings to ensure a healthy balance of both.
