To help children understand how oral health is connected to overall wellness for both themselves and the animals, the Zoo and United Concordia are using the dental wellness company’s mobile app, Chomper Chums, to reward children who brush, floss and rinse correctly. The app, which is available in the App Store or Google Play, turns these daily oral health activities into a fun game by providing the children with “digital coins” they can use to buy food for an animal character of their choosing – a lion, horse, or alligator.
The healthier the food, the healthier their animal becomes, teaching children to make smart food choices for themselves and become “Chomper Chum Champions.” Children can earn a free ticket to visit the Zoo by earning a set amount of coins equal to brushing, flossing and rinsing two times per day for six weeks.
