Cooking Fun For Kids: Healthy Playful Recipes, Food Games, and Videos for Kids in the Kitchen by Bean Sprouts
Top children’s app developer, Playrific, in partnership with Bean Sprouts -- a hip and healthy kid-friendly café and cooking school -- introduces a new experiential learning app: Bean Sprouts: Cooking Fun for Kids in the Kitchen.
The Bean Sprouts Cooking Fun For Kids app is filled with fun and healthy kid-friendly recipes, videos, games, books, photos and puzzles designed to empower, entertain and educate kids to cook and eat healthfully.
Cooking Fun for Kids’ videos, reciPEAs and activities will be updated regularly to stay “fresh” and engaging!
Designed for children eight and under, the one-of-a-kind app features a cute cast of silly pea and bean characters who guide users through playful recipes, star in food games and magically appear in videos. The app offers a play-by-play on creating the most popular “Imaginibbles” recipes from Bean Sprouts and the award-winning book it inspired: Bean Appetit: Hip and Healthy Ways to Have Fun with Food.
Bean Sprouts has found that kids are about 30% more likely to try a new taste if the dish has a playful element (which is also backed by a Cornell study). Bean Sprouts: Cooking Fun for Kids, teaches kids how to make fun, good-for-you dishes like Crocamole—guacamole hummus disguised as a crocodile, and Snack Man—a pineapple and blueberry snack that looks like the lead character of a famous video game.
In addition, kids can dress up their favorite Bean Buddies and test their “Pea Brain” with food-themed puzzles and memory games. Plus a portion of the app proceeds benefits Junior League’s Kids in the Kitchen program, which engages kids in the preparation of healthy meals as a means to educate them and their parents regarding nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices.
