The White House Asks about Healthy Kid Apps

The First Lady announces the “Apps for Healthy Kids Challenge” and we want to know: What kind of Healthy Kid App would you like to see developed?

This afternoon the First Lady announced the Apps for Healthy Kids Challenge -- a contest with the USDA to challenge professional and amateur developers to come up with games that incorporate nutritional information and promote healthy living. From dance video games to nutrition mobile applications, we’re challenging designers to come up with the next big idea to make healthy living fun. The App Challenge is just one of the innovative ways that the First Lady is working to help kids lead active, healthy lives and end childhood obesity within a generation, as part of the nationwide Let’s Move! campaign.

Developer or not, we want to hear your ideas. This week, the White House is teaming up with GOOD to ask:

What kind of healthy kid app would you like to see developed?

Tell us on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. Some of the most interesting responses will be featured on the White House blog and on the GOOD blog, so stay tuned. And in case you missed it, take a look at your responses to last week’s question about a 21st century education.
