What apps can help me track my child's growth, development and weight?

Two apps can help parents make informed decisions about their child's weight:

  • The Withings Smart Kid Scale (withings.com) is a connected baby and toddler scale designed to help parents track and assess their child’s health and growth from birth to eight years old. Its dedicated app helps parents track their children’s growth path, with visualized weight trends and development charts that can be compared to set standards. Parents can also share this information with their pediatrician, leading to early intervention if children are at risk for becoming overweight.
  • First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Initiative is also using digital resources to help encourage children and parents make informed decisions about nutrition and health. The site -- letsmove.gov -- contains information about food and nutrition, physical activity and strategies for families, schools and communities to help children avoid childhood obesity.
