Top children’s app developer, Playrific, in partnership with Bean Sprouts -- a hip and healthy kid-friendly café and cooking school -- introduces a new experiential learning app: Bean Sprouts: Cooking Fun for Kids in the Kitchen. The Bean Sprouts Cooking Fun For Kids app is filled with fun and healthy kid-friendly recipes, videos, games, books, photos and puzzles designed to empower, entertain and educate kids to cook and eat healthfully. Cooking Fun for Kids’ videos, reciPEAs and activities will be updated regularly to stay “fresh” and engaging! Designed for children eight and under, the one-of-a-kind app features a cute cast of silly pea and bean characters who guide users through playful recipes, star in food games and magically appear in videos. The app offers a play-by-play on creating the most popular “Imaginibbles” recipes from Bean Sprouts and the award-winning book it inspired: Bean Appetit: Hip and Healthy Ways to Have Fun with Food. Bean Sprouts has found that kids are about 30% more likely to try a new taste if the dish has a playful element (which is also backed by a Cornell study). Bean Sprouts: Cooking Fun for Kids, teaches kids how to make fun, good-for-you dishes like Crocamole—guacamole hummus disguised as a crocodile, and Snack Man—a pineapple and blueberry snack that looks like the lead character of a famous video game. In addition, kids can dress up their favorite Bean Buddies and test their “Pea Brain” with food-themed puzzles and memory games. Plus a portion of the app proceeds benefits Junior League’s Kids in the Kitchen program, which engages kids in the preparation of healthy meals as a means to educate them and their parents regarding nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices.

    Love that my grand kids play with games featuring healthy foods. They have it on their moms iPhone and asked me to download on my iPad. They were delighted that my version had even more choices for the veggie face games. Easy 5 star rating and onLy $.99!

    Got the app after visiting Bean Sprouts restaurant in San Fran. We loved it! The app totally captures the playful experience that was at the place. My children never thought healthy food could be so much fun.

  • My child is playing with vegetables!

    My 6yr old son HATES vegetables. So I thought he would ask me to delete this app in a heartbeat but to my utter surprise he has been playing with it a lot! He even practices his sight words because he wants to read the recipes. He won't actually eat a veg yet but this is a great start. Small footprint on our over stuffed iPad too. Great app, thanks!!!
