"Count Your Peas is a solid and compelling app for the whole family. I applaud Design Seedling, Inc. for coming up with such an appropriate, timely, informative and relevant app." - Healthy Eating is Easy with Count Your Peas - http://www.lunchboxreviews.com/blog/ by Milane
"I think Count Your Peas is a fun way to get young children involved and aware of their food choices. The abacus method makes the tracking very easy and the activities make it fun, which hopefully makes the habit stick!" - http://www.theiphonemom.com/count-your-peas
"You are what you eat? Maybe, but for sure what you eat counts and children must be educated into healthy eating while still very young. A good way to do that is by mixing lessons with games and Count your Peas is doing just that." - http://kids-apps.mobi/count-your-peas/

Easy, Colorful and Fun, what
Like many other families, we have decided to "get healthy" and wanted to find a fun way to involve our son. This app has proved to help keep us motivated and start teaching our son about making good choices. He loves to play "tic tac toe" and make "works of art" with his fruits. He might not understand what exactly each thing is but he certainly enjoys adding more fruits or veggies to his picture. It is colorful and simplistic, but that is what makes it easy and fun for a kid to actually use! Cute.
love the creative/exploratory nature of the app and the beautiful food images
kids love the art projects
Love this App!
I recently launched my own app in ITunes, hAPPy family - a positive parenting app. The initial reason I created my app is because due to busy lives and not being a great chef, my kids developed some unhealthy eating habits. I created a game, that is now hAPPy family app, to help with this struggle (and it did!) and others!
But I love this app as well because it is another easy, fun & engaging way to talk to kids about making healthy food choices. It is colorful, bright & very engaging! Thanks for creating this app!
