Habitz is a fun-to-use app that empowers kids to develop healthy habits and stick with them for life!
Kids can be picky eaters, junk food lovers, spend too much time online, sleep-in too late, and not help with chores. With Habitz, your child can reduce or eliminate all of these behaviors with positive reinforcement!
Habitz uses the knowledge, research and methods of leading pediatric dietitians, sports coaches and behavioral psychologists to provide parents with a critical tool to help their children lead healthier lives. Help your kids learn healthy habits today with Habitz!
HOW HABITZ WORKS:
- Parents select from pre-set healthy goals for their kids
- Parents can also set fun and personalized goals to make healthy choices & get rewarded for hitting those goals.
- Kids complete and track their goals within the app.
- Kids interact with Viki (our automated health and lifestyle coach) via fun and educational stories.
- They will learn why the choices they’re asked to make are smart and healthy.
- Kids will then earn rewards as they complete their goals, encouraging them to continue making the right choices on a daily basis.
- Rewards are selected by kids from our curated Habitz Store, and then approved and paid for by parents.
- Parents can also designate non-monetary rewards to be given to their kids after achieving a goal.

Ratings and Reviews
Really Cool, but...
I think the app itself is a neat idea to implement both healthy lifestyle and reasons for a healthy lifestyle. As for the “customization” option, it’s a great way to add a chore mix to their healthy lifestyle routine.
However, this app does need a few changes:
1. Have an Edit or Delete option to the list. The “Edit” part of the request, would be able to MOVE listings around so certain lists like “Brush Your Teeth” isn’t in the middle and “Wake Up On Time” isn’t at the end for kids to select; Select as you go, basically.
2. For the Customization part, why not add custom clip art to select from instead of the default “check list” clip art. Like a clip art of “🚫” for Foods/Drinks to avoid. The “Avoid junk food” is a bit too generalized and isn’t clarified. Having the customization could help parents specify what their kids should actually avoid, as an example for clip art title option.
3. For some reason, when my daughter activated her account and after the tutorial part of the app, it had selected a listing that she did not fulfill. Basically saying she completed it when she just started. Please have an option to unselect the listing.
Thank you for creating such a neat and inspirational idea for both parents and kids. Please continue to work on this app, wouldn’t mind paying for this app if these ideas or more were active on it.
Love this app, my kids love it too!
UPDATE: The new Zombie and Pirate Workout feature is amazing. Kids love it better than 7 minute for kids.
My daughter decided to stop drinking soda! I am sure it will take some time before it will actually happen, but this app has changed her view on soda! Please send more stories!
Update - looks like new version has one more story, it was consumed right away. Would love to get notified when new stories come.
Very difficult to customize
Looks simple and appealing at first, but it’s not practical. There’s no deleting habits once you create them, they still show up with a red bar next to them (which is annoying) and then it sends a message to your child saying they didn’t do the activity on time. No editing items once you make them either. No switching between days to see items created for a certain day of the week. Rewards show 1 coin items which is not practical because you still have to pay like $3 shipping to order that item. Customized items don’t have the option to change value...they are all worth 10 coins. Great idea, but simply not usable. Would not recommend. This app needs LOTS of work.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
