Montreal’s Tribal Nova, a Houghton Mifflin Harcourt company and developer behind the award winning PBS KIDS PLAY! online learning program, announces its latest app, i Learn With Bo: Nutrition! – now available on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. An important addition to its most awarded i Learn With suite of early childhood education apps, the new i Learn With Bo: Nutrition! App teaches children about healthy eating and how to create a balanced diet. In the current movement to help children be active and self-conscious about their own health, this app is one of the very few that teaches young children important eating habits and skills that will help them make healthy choices for themselves.
Nutrition and Healthy Eating! comprises three highly engaging games teaching children to distinguish healthy foods from foods that have too much fat or sugar, learn the different food groups, and create a delicious and balanced meal.
“i Learn With Bo: Nutrition! is a unique addition to our suite of educational apps that teach science, language, arts, math, literacy and foreign languages. We were very inspired by the national initiative led by the U.S. First Lady that encourages children and young adults to grow healthier, and wanted to contribute to this movement by creating fun games to help children live healthier lives from their earliest years.”, explains Pierre Le Lann, co-CEO of Tribal Nova.
i Learn With is a curriculum-oriented, game-based school readiness program for children ages 3-6. Based on National Standards and designed with the help of teachers and developmental experts, this suite of education apps proves that games can be both fun and truly educational.
Parents can monitor their child’s progress in the app or through email alerts and compare it with children that are the same age. The program also adjusts the level of difficulty to each child’s abilities, recommends a personalized learning path for each child and integrates highly engaging rewards for educational achievements.
All i Learn With apps are available on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and provide tracking across multiple iOS devices. Children can start playing on an iPad, for example, and later continue playing on their parent’s iPhone at the exact same level where they left off, without losing any of their progress or rewards.
