Creating Value starting with a Loaf of Bread Calories-out-comparison-toolPeople tend to overestimate the calories consumed when exercising. The calories-out-comparison-tool, is a table that traces levels of activity vs slices / percentages of a loaf of bread could be consumed to make up for the calorie loss. The purpose of this tool is to make people aware of the effects of their activity and eating habits potentially spurring them to exercise more or to eat less.For example, a person can plug-in:GenderAgeWeightHeightActivity (swim, bike, run, walk, sleep)Intensity (either heart rate or Slow, Medium, High).The tool will estimate the calorie consumption and percentages of fat and carbohydrates used in the activity and estimate the number of slices or loaves of bread “earned” with that activity.
Creating Value starting with a Loaf of Bread Calories-in-Visualisation-toolSimilar to the previous idea, people tend to underestimate the calories contained in the food they consume. The calories-in-comparison-tool, is a table that compares a healthy, well balanced food such as a loaf of bread, with other foods either junk or nutritiousThe purpose of this tool is to make people aware, via a means of visualisation, of the nutritional value of foods and the non-correlation of size vs calories or grams of fat , protein and carbohydrates.One exemple of this visualisation tool would be that a whole loaf of bread is the equivalent to 75% of a Big Mac Meal. So there would be a photo (or in the flesh) of a loaf of bread and the different foods’ equivalent (such as three quartes of a Big Mac Meal)

With added vitamins in the way of dry fruits, nuts, olives, etc.• Two Alternatives: – As a convenience food for people on the go. A full meal at hand with all the nutritional requirements at hand. – To help under nourished children in need of nutrition supplements in areas of catastrophe. The versatility of bread, allows to carry the dough frozen, including all these highly nutritious additions to be baked on site and provided as a full meal to people in affected areas (also with a high value-for-money in terms of nutrition per kilo and cost)

Creating Value starting with a Loaf of Bread Bread Christmas treeUsing a tall bread-stick, using slices to create the base and the branches and leaves from bread slices.If it is made out of a loaf low in humidity, it should last for a couple of weeks (and potentially replace the traditional tree) or if highly humid and fresh, made as an ornament for Christmas dinner.
