The Anti-Obesity Games

The Anti-Obesity Games

Researchers at Pennsylvania State University are investigating whether digital games can help children make better dietary choices, according to Penn State News. In the study, children receive tablets loaded with games that involve choosing between healthy and unhealthy foods. Designed to teach dietary lessons that pertain to real life, the games are part of a larger research project to determine how digital gaming can help prevent childhood obesity. The goal is to provide children with the knowledge and skills needed to make choices that will aid in maintaining a healthy weight.
