1. Abstract
As the childhood obesity rate grows dramatically, we need to help children gaina greater awareness of their eating habits and its nutritional context. In this paper,I propose
, an online food diary that helps children between the ages of nine and eleven years old visualize their personal eating habits and learn about thenutritional value of the food they consume for lunch.
adopts a photo-graphic food diary method inspired by Lydia Zepeda’s research. Her research finds thatphotographic food diaries are more likely to raise personal awareness and changeeating behavior than written diaries.Unlike other food diaries,
takes a visual approach to data entry, navigation,and review in a social context. It allows children to post photos of the lunches theyconsume and review their eating habits by collectively categorizing their lunch photos.Teachers post several categorization questions. Children answer these categorizationquestions by selecting the lunch photos that fit the criteria.
deploys a graphical user interface for data entry, navigation, and reviewthat exploits design conventions familiar and appealing to children.
