Bellevue game scores in White House “healthy apps” contest

A Bellevue couple won honorable mention in the “Apps for Healthy Kids” contest sponsored by First Lady Michelle Obama, with their game “Smash your Food.”

Frederic and Marta De Wulf submitted the free, online game in June. She’s a nutritionist and he’s a multimedia producer who has worked with Microsoft and other companies.

In their game, different foods are crushed in goofy machine, revealing how much sugar, salt and oil they contain.

Game blog Joystiq — where I first read about the winners — especially liked the exploding food effect in “Smash your Food.”
