It’s not too late for families to create New Year’s resolutions to be healthier and more physically fit. Renown integrated medical physician Elson M. Haas, MD and his kid-friendly cartoon persona, Dr. Sun, have just released a new children’s app that teaches kids about the body and nutritional health called Anatomix Comix.
Anatomix Comix is an early childhood educational tool that offers a fun, interactive approach to teaching children about the science of their bodies. Published by children’s entertainment company Seasons Studios and powered by mobile app developer RipplFX©, the app is available on the App Store for the iPhone® and iPad®. It includes nine original songs about the major body systems as well as interactive features where viewers to can easily follow along with the lyrics or pause at any time to learn a new science fact. Anatomix Comix is also available on the Seasons Studios website in its original form as a colorful songbook and musical CD featuring twelve songs about the body.
According to Dr. Haas, once an overweight child with a penchant for junk food, he has particular interest in wanting to help children develop good health habits. “At a young age I learned to replace my addiction to junk food with a passion for exercise and nutritious food. Teaching children about their bodies and how to make smart choices is essential for them to enjoy a long and healthy life.”
Parents and teachers alike appreciate the interactivity of Anatomix Comix because it gets children excited to learn, singing along to songs like “B-B-B-Bones,” “Thump-Thump” or “You’ve Got a lot of Nerves.” As Dr. Sun says, “A song a day is a healthy way to play.”
