About this Project:

Our students wanted to come up with a way to help people find quick and easy recipes to keep them happy and healthy. They realized that they often are unsure of what is healthy and unhealthy.

The app they designed allows people to choose a specific food item and find healthy recipes using that item.

Great app idea! I like how it narrows down your food choice to healthy options. A great addition would be to have the recipes scalable for number of servings and to include the price of the ingredients so you can calculate your food budget.

I really like the idea of letting users choose what kind of meal they’re in the mood for, and then getting suggestions for a healthier version it. It seems to me this would be more popular than having a strict diet to follow. I would research and test this hypothesis (idea). It could really take off: letting the users have control of what they are searching for.

I also appreciate that the whole team participated in the presentation and think using images can be a big draw (attraction) for users. Great job!

Bravo on a beautiful and thoughtful app! I love that all of you worked together to contribute different types of food to the app, making sure that a wide and diverse group of people would find recipes that they'd like – and ones that are healthy! This is certainly an app that I would download and use. I always need more ideas for meals!

What a great idea! Changing our habits to be more healthy can be hard, especially when we have cravings for food that is familiar and beloved. But small changes can make a big difference! I love this approach, which is actually more likely to work long term, by make sure that you can still have the food you love, just with small modifications. Your video is also a wonderful showcase of the different meals that this app might feature and how they can play a part in a balanced diet.

Thank you for a record-breaking 14th anniversary event! Comments are officially closed until next year.
