NoteNiks.net, creators of the Healthy Eating & Exercise CD-ROM, have announced that the software has been selected as a recipient of the Institute for Childhood Resources Dr. Toy Smart Play/Smart Toy Product of Excellence Award for 2006.
The CD-ROM, which debuted earlier this year in partnership with
software design veterans NoteNiks.Net, is the first piece of
educational software that teaches children ages 3 – 8 the importance of selecting healthy foods and keeping active.
Following a similar award from iParenting Media, the NoteNiks.Net team has just released upgraded (v.1.1) release of the Healthy Eating CD that offers an all new class curriculum which helps educators and parents alike share healthy eating lessons with their children both on the computer and off.
"The Healthy Eating CD is more than just a product for our company. It is a cause. Every one of the developers on the team has kids in the age range of these games and we take this product offering very seriously," says Yon Hardisty, partner in NoteNiks.Net, "We have seen the power of pairing simple game mechanics with healthy messages. It is a strong partnership and the kids love it. The team is constantly taking in feedback from parents, educators, and kids in order to allow this product to evolve. Look for even more in the future as we add new games, curriculums, and services."
