Food, Nutrition and Health Apps developed by UNL Extension
Where do hot dogs come from? Milk? Hamburgers? Eggs? Most youngsters likely will say the grocery store. "We Grow It, do You Know It" is a lively, free app that gives kids their first lessons in how agriculture produces the things they love to eat. From the University of Nebraska's Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
UNL Extension and Educational Media have teamed up to generate snack planet, a new, free iPad app available online though the Apple Store.
Snack Planet is a game developed to promote the benefits of healthy snacking and exercise. Help Optimis the robot move quickly through a maze, grab healthy foods and reach the exit before time runs out. Beware of the unhealthy snacks -- they reduce both time and score.
The "4-Day Throw Away" application for Apple iPhone and iPod touch, available now from the App Store, is an extension of the 4 Day Throw Away campaign, which educates consumers about the dangers of foodborne illnesses and the four-day guideline for eating, freezing or throwing away leftovers.
