This app is so great I want to eat it up. The PBS KIDS D.W. (from "Arthur") Unicorn Adventure app that encourages kids to eat healthy while they play is discounted to $.99 through Sept. 30! Another game for kids you say?  This app is the favorite of my 6-year-old and for good reason (it's also my fave).  Fun, colorful, and the 'energy zapper' junk food cracks this Mama UP. This is one well-spent dollar my Mama friends.  

(In the spirit of telling the whole truth - a common theme at my house - I humbly admit to you now that I just opened the app to see what fruits and veggies were in it and got sucked in for 10 minutes.)  SHHHHH! (Since I know you are dying to know how I did, I got a blueberry boost which thank goodness kept my daughter at Level 9.)  Man, I would have been in hot water if my unicorn jumping skills had failed me and I screwed up her hard jumping work. Whew. Close call. 

Get it today at http://to.pbs.org/dwunicorn and maybe you too (I mean, ahem, your kids) can jump grab some grapes, blueberries or plums. Skip the soda please.
