What Did You Eat Today? Eating Veggies for Better Health!

  1. 1. What Did You Eat Today? A conceptual design by Cristina Cordova Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu Design Challenge To design a concept that motivates young women to eat five vegetables per day
  2. 2. Eating Veggies for Better Health <ul><li>Persuasive Purpose </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To form a healthy daily habit by motivating women to increase their vegetable intake. </li></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu Tracking Web App for Mobile Device Eating More Veggies + Texting <ul><li>Industrial Design </li></ul>=
  3. 3. User Description <ul><ul><li>The target user is a </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Stanford Student </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Member of a housed sorority </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>All target users are in the same sorority and eat most meals together on weekdays </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>All target users have a smart phone </li></ul></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
  4. 4. Jane & The Veggie App Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu Jane is coming back from class for lunch Jane receives text telling her to eat her veggies at lunch Jane opens her Veggie tracking app, a web app to track her veggie intake Jane eats her meal as usual Jane receives email at the end of the week with her veggie intake results Jane checks off the vegetables she ate that day
  5. 5. Prototype of The Sorority Woman & Her Sunscreen Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu Receive text Eat Veggies Interact with Veggie App See data of veggies eaten throughout the week
  6. 6. Features/Functionality <ul><ul><li>Choosing women who already have access to healthy food cooked by a chef will lower the barrier to eating healthy food </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ensuring the text arrives at meal times will ensure better eating habits at meals. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Utilizing a mobile will keep the process on one technological device and provide a fun way to track behavior wherever the user goes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Users love to apps. This process combines a health habit with what smart phone users love to interact with. </li></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
  7. 7. Theoretical Justifications <ul><ul><li>I chose these steps based on what several women surveyed prefer. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Many want to be able to participate if they choose to eat at different locations for meals. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Many women did not want many extra steps in eating routines - this design is just one step. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Many women don’t want difficult forms or documents to fill out to ensure compliance. A quick check off app is simpler. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Many women often forget to eat healthily regardless of their intentions. The text reminder will be added trigger and the survey will be a form of follow-up./ </li></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
  8. 8. Results of User Testing <ul><ul><li>Will be added when research is completed. </li></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
  9. 9. Shortcomings of Design <ul><ul><li>Lunch and dinner times could be irregular. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Women may not want to use a smart phone during or after meal times. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The design lacks a group-element. It could be more effective if it is social. </li></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
  10. 10. Expansion <ul><ul><li>Other form factors or ID possibilities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Placing reminder note around eating areas to serve as additional reminder. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Other features and interactions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>More details about benefits of eating vegetables could provide incentive. </li></ul></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
  11. 11. Next Steps in Design Process <ul><ul><li>Announce research study on sorority mailing list. Alert women of benefits of eating veggies and the technological aspect! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Contact those who seem interested and have smart phones. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Get the eating schedules for participants. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Show women how to set the web app as a button on their home screen or a bookmark. </li></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
  12. 12. Summary Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu <ul><li>By using two triggers including: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reminder text at wakeup time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A mobile and web app to track behavior </li></ul></ul><ul><li>and convenience of use factors including </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A one step web app </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Healthy food and chef for the target audience </li></ul></ul><ul><li>this research study will </li></ul><ul><ul><li>form a healthy daily habit of eating vegetables! </li></ul></ul>
