Individual Project

Tastee

Having helped my cousin to look after her young daughter for a summer vacation, I was surprised to see how difficult it could be to feed a young child. The very first thing to deal with is - the young girl is not willing to eat the meals provided by her mother... From this experience, I decided to carry out a project to design a solution to children’s eating.

| Parents, have you ever known…

Things have always been ignored but important 

| Things About Children’s Dietary​

| So, I created Tastee

The Tastee system consists of a set of tableware and a phone-based APP

01  The children-friendly design of this set of tableware could help children develop a better eating habit.  

02  The Tastee app will provide parents various recipes suitable for their children after analyzing the data from the tableware. 

03  With the help of Tastee app, parents can alter the diet of their children in a scientific way.

Children-friendly and easy to use

A step-by-step and longterm solution

The Tastee will send a notification to parents to remind them. Meanwhile, parents will get some recipes recommended by the app. After the child finishes a meal, the tableware will calculate the intake by weighing module and give a data analysis about the nutrition intake in this meal. And the recipe recommendation will update according to the renewed data.

How does it work?

The Tastee will send a notification to parents to remind them. Meanwhile, parents will get some recipes from the app. After the child finishes a meal, the tableware will calculate the intake by weighing module and give a data analysis about the nutrition intake in this meal.

 

Moreover, the recipe recommendation will update according to the renewed data.
