CAVE BRO by Florida Virtual School is a fun interactive app focusing on healthy food choices.
Developed by the Florida Virtual School, this middle grades app uses a game environment to teach concepts related to choosing a healthy and balanced meal. Players work their way through 25 levels. Each level introduces new foods. In addition to game play, users also learn about specific foods and their nutritional value.
The colorful, attractive graphs and fast-paced games will be a hit with youth.
Librarians will find this to be a fun app to address health and nutrition standards. Collaborate with the health teacher to build activities that connect the app with the ChooseMyPlate.gov website and nonfiction books in the library collection.
Future versions of the program may include an exercise element.
