Tech innovations offer informative nutrition programs for children at home

Implications - Food programs for children, whether interactive or passive, are leveraging technology and media to better inform children on everything from farming and cooking, to nutrition and fitness. These innovations allow for practical experience that counters the obesity and nutritional deficits that too many children in North America face. These renewed platforms through which nutrition is taught in homes are designed to offer more experiential approaches to learning, in the hopes that they will better resonate with target audiences.
