food, nutrition & health
reestablishing the relationship with food through interactive education
specific problem focus-relationship with purpose of food
Advertising of food to kids has started earlier, become more deceptive and has muddled the clarity of the food we eat as well as negatively impacted the relationship kids have with food.
Lack of information kid/parents have about what is in their food/where it comes from.
Lack of knowledge about what food should be.
Disconnect between kids and food's original purpose of nourishment, sustenance and quality energy.
A mobile food, nutrition and health education program
Kindergarten-middle school kids (indirectly their families)
In 2012, more than 1/3 of children/adolescents were overweight or obese.

Persistence of pediatric obesity into adulthood increases according to the age at which obesity is initially present.
Deckelbaum & Williams, 2012
Children often considered the priority population for intervention because weight loss in adulthood is difficult and there are a greater number of potential interventions for children than for adults.
Dehghan, Akhtar-Danesh & Merchant, 2005
