Abstract: Similar to trends in other developed nations, the increasing incidence of childhood obesity in Australia has become an alarming trend and a significant health issue. For some time, school health education programs have included components of nutrition and exercise, however, the complexity of those issues (i.e., the combination of the foods eaten and activity undertaken) is not always explored at a cognitive level. Thus, the aim of the project reported in this paper was to address this health education problem through the design and development ? and ultimate implementation ? of an interactive multimedia environment that will allow children to understand and then apply knowledge about diet and exercise related aspects of lifestyle. This paper reports on the design of the multimedia learning environment, initial prototype development and formative evaluation.
