NV Runners is a pedagogical game for iPad and iPhone. It has been created by a Portuguese enterprise Nutri Ventures.

In a world where children's excess weight and obesity is considered one of the pandemics of the 21st century, Nutri Ventures is the first worldwide game exclusively created to encourage children to develop healthy eating habits. 

My usual readers know I write often about kids' healthy life. You will find on this blog different posts: Fighting Kids Obesity... dancing (obesity) with the support of Beyonce who took part of the program; Environmental Education and Outdoor activities (nature); Billabong Surf Trip (surf); Enviromental App for Education.

Some thoughts: 

Getting kids outside teaches them about the world around and gives them an appreciation of nature while providing an opportunity for sunshine and exercise.

Healthy eating habits are very important in a fast-food world! 

NV Runners is based on the well know heroes from The Nutri Ventures televisionIt is already available in 20 countries reaching more than 220 million kids and young adolescents.



Healthier America Summit

Nutri Ventures attended the Partnership for a Healthier America Summit and the responsables felt reenergized with the enthusiasm of all the participants and very motivated with the First Lady Michelle Obama's speach.
