About

Seasonal Sammy was designed to introduce young users age 4-7 to the concept of seasonal food and nutrition education through engaging coloring content lead by Sammy, a cute and quirky NYC rat and his best friend Penelope the pigeon.


Sammy was created by SIMMER, a branch of Tech Incubator at Queens College (TIQC), is a tech and food collaboration uniting students from multidisciplinary fields to create food and health related technologies. This childhood nutritional education app was created in summer 2019 by Queens College students from the FNES department and the tech incubator--a diverse and talented crew.

Childhood Nutrition Education Matters

Childhood obesity is a serious problem in the United States putting children and adolescents at risk for poor health. Obesity prevalence among children and adolescents is still too high.
