dc.description.abstractEducating children in healthy lifestyle habits is one of the most effective ways to prevent future diseases such as obesity and improve their health. This chapter presents an educational intervention project to promote healthy lifestyle habits using active video games and gamified activities as a motivational tool towards healthier habits. In particular, we describe the workshops carried out in different primary schools using an active video game called TANGO:H and other gamified tools. The results of these workshops have shown a very high satisfaction with the intervention itself and the active video game.pt_PT
