It’s almost 2013 and as parents start making New Year’s resolutions, developing healthy eating habits with their kids should be a focus. To help make this fun and approachable for kids (while making good use of the smartphones and tablets they unwrapped for holiday gifts), PBS KIDS has several great apps to help spur healthy eating habits:
