The Kurbo Health smartphone application aims to make healthier choices and advice more accessible for children. Specifically targeted towards obesity among kids, the platform applies the time-honored "Traffic Light" diet which places food into "red," "yellow" and "green" categories. These color-coated divisions make the program simple to comprehend for younger age groups.
In addition to the shaded food groupings, Kurbo Health also incorporates games, weight challenges and coaching options. Central to each of these tools are their kid-friendly approach to weight loss, making the daunting process more approachable for elementary school students.
Coaches are also available at the touch of a button via Skype, phone or text. This way, users can work consistently with motivated trainers.
