I love Michelle Obama's new initiative Apps for Healthy Kids!  What a great savvy way to approach the obesity epidemic in kids.  I love the whole go to the people project....except for one rather glaring glitch, the esteemed 9 expert judge panel is 85% men.  Just one woman on the team.  Now if I was going to find judges for games for kids it sure as heck would include more women and definitely more moms.  Let's urge them to get a few more moms on the team.
