Eat Your Health
Explain your idea in details:
Its an application that tells people, especially the ones with health problems, ingredients and food to avoid and recommend a food store near them. People with specific diseases have to avoid certain types of food. For example, people with heart diseases have to avoid salty and fatty food, and people with diabetes have to keep sugar away. This app is basically like a food dictionary. You write in your profile including age, gender, address, and current health state, then the app will show you the list of food and ingredients to avoid and to prefer. If you are not sure if the food youre willing to eat is okay or not, you can search it like a dictionary and it will tell you how safe or dangerous it is. You can also look for a restaurant to eat safely at, you can click the look for safe food store and choose from the recommended stores. Unlike other food apps, this app shows what exact menu to eat from the store, showing the ingredients of the menu.You can not only use this app for improving your health, but also when you want to lose weight.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
This app will help people keep their health and prevent worsening disease. Goal 3 Many people do not handle their illness carefully, and they often worsen the disease to the state where its incurable, and sometimes even die. We can easily measure the success of this app by the number of users and feedback from users including how their health improved in detail.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Just like food delivery apps, it will be connected to many food stores, especially the ones trying to sell healthy food. Nowadays, a lot of food stores try to appeal to customers by showing how healthy their food is. We can easily see salad stores and organic juice being sold. If we have those stores on this app, the food stores will have an opportunity to appeal to customers looking for healthy food, and we can give the users a wider field for choice. Im thinking that advertising some food stores or health products would earn us a lot of money too. We can have advertisements of certain products or stores like organic juice or newly opened salad stores. This would benefit both the brand/stores and us.
Im 15 years old, and Im a student in Seongnam Foreign Language High school in South Korea. I was motivated by my grandfather. My grandfather has a heart disease, and he was told that he should be really careful of salty, sugary, and fatty food. I had no idea how badly food can affect his health, but the doctor told him that not eating carefully could actually give him a stroke and kill him. I was really surprised because likeI said, I didnt realize the effect food can have. So I thought it would be very nice to have an app that tells people exactly what to avoid, because some foods are more dangerous than they seem.
