English
Cost: Free
A family-focused app that aims to engage children and parents and help them make healthy food choices
"Unhealthy eating is a leading risk factor for chronic disease in Canada,” says Charlotte Comrie, CEO Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada. "We know how important nutrition is and yet our children’s health is threatened; this puts children and adolescents at risk for premature heart disease and stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, and some types of cancer.”

Informed by research, this…app has been carefully crafted to provide a fun and interactive experience for children and families to eat healthily together. A combination of the words “fruits” and “veggies,” Froogie offers tips and reminders to promote daily fruit and veggie intake to help meet age-appropriate goals. Up to nine animated Froogie characters can be earned over time and help encourage families to live life on the veg!

“It’s a struggle to get one of my children to eat fruits and vegetables,” says Kimberley Hernandez, parent of three children.

“Froogie is going to be a great way to encourage him and get him engaged in mealtimes. I love the animated characters!”
