Yooboot for Mary

An online campaign that lets you build a personalised 'Yoobot' while explaining the risks of poor diet and a lack of exercise has been hailed a success.


More than 200,000 Yoobots have been created and the site has had more than 500,000 hits in the two weeks since it launched, the British Heart Foundation (BHF) said.


The BHF created the site in response to a report that showed almost three-quarters of eight to 15-year-olds were not aware that a junk food-laden diet could potentially shorten their life.


Betty McBride, director of Policy and Communications at the BHF said: "It's fantastic to see so many kids having fun while getting life-saving information about heart health at the same time."


Once you have created your Yoobot, you can set a diet and exercise regime for it to see how it develops over time and what kind of health problems it could encounter.
