As part of her ongoing Let’s Move! campaign aimed at ending childhood obesity, first lady Michelle Obama teamed up with the USDA to sponsor The Apps for Healthy Kids Competition last summer. While the competition certainly sparked a slew of innovative and educational apps for children, there have been a lot of new additions to the market since then.

One of the newest apps to join the ranks is Soy Pals, sponsored by The Soyfoods Council and United Soybean Board, which debuted this week in celebration of National Soy Foods Month. The program teaches children how to care for their Soy Pal and feed them nutritionally sound foods when they’re running low on energy.
