    Billions of dollars are spent each year in efforts to prevent and treat diseases caused by unhealthy eating habits. Promoting awareness among young children regarding the importance of achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is crucial for preparing them to sustain healthy lives as adults. This article aims to highlight ways to help students determine a healthy weight and then use an interactive simulation as a tool to design a healthy eating plan, check its appropriateness on human health, and make informed decisions about their weight status to support a healthy lifestyle. The interactive simulation provides a fruitful learning environment in which students conduct explorations, get instant feedback, and connect ideas with real-world phenomena.
