The team at BabyFirst also recognizes just how important it is to get kids excited about eating healthy, and that's why BabyFirst teamed up with the American Heart Association to launch a new app available at no cost for iOS devices.
The app, called Harry's Healthy Garden, is targeted toward children between the ages of 2 and 4 to inspire kids to try healthy foods while simultaneously teaching them where fruits and veggies actually come from (because it's not the local grocery store!). And Harry's Healthy Garden is not just for kids! While kids plant and harvest the virtual garden they've created, parents can log on to access recipes that use each food the app features.
