The American Good Design Award is "one of the oldest and most authoritative design awards globally," and this year it went to a product that "can alleviate the fear and anxiety often associated with health monitoring by engaging children in a fun and interactive way, transforming it into a positive and empowering experience," the Chicago Athenaeum Museum and the European Design Centre say in a press release.

The product in question: Pulse Pal, a heart-healthy app for kids designed by Chinese designers Yachu Feng and Shuyi Liu.

The app tracks kids' physical activity, eating habits, and more, and it includes a feature that allows parents to join in on the fun, Mashable reports.

"By fostering habits of physical activity, healthy eating, and mindfulness from a young age, Pulse Pal aims to reduce the risk of childhood obesity, heart disease, and other related conditions," the press release says.

"Pulse Pal includes a parent participation feature, allowing parents to actively engage in their child's health education process, learning and growing together with their child," it continues. Read the Entire Article
