How to motivate children to eat healthy food? "Eats" —a mobile application that does this with the help of children's favorite superheroes. Application allows for child anthropometric data (height, weight and age) and based on this information creates a "superhero" nutrition program.

Young users get great tools to help keep track of their diet (calorie calculator, water tracker, children's recipes) and an interactive game that helps to gain knowledge on healthy eating.

Design

Taking into account the interests of the child will allow us to build a positive image of healthy eating. It is worth noting that we only “build image ”, and we do not provide information on how children's idols eat. We select the diet for our young users according to their anthropometric data and age.

  • Calorie calculator
    Water tracker
    Opportunity to share with friends
  • The "Food" section. Here is information about products / recipes (they can be sent to parents), as well as articles about healthy eating.
  • Nutrition Game

How does it work? Food and two statements appear on the screen (one true, the other not). The player's task is to choose the right one. With each level the task becomes more difficult. Thus, in the form of a game, young users learn something new.

Technologies

Based on our experience, the development team decided to use React native to frontend development and С# for the backend. For best results in the short term, our development process was built on a three-week sprint.

Having finished our common project with bArt Solutions I need to express my opinion concerning our cooperation. Despite the fact that I’m a very annoying client, the members of bArt Solutions have always answered all the questions patiently. I have been provided with all needed information during the whole creating process, what I really appreciate. They astonished me with lateral thinking, innovative approaches and completely new ideas.
