The problem is that many people struggle with maintaining a healthy diet due to a lack of knowledge about what constitutes a healthy meal, as well as a lack of time and resources to plan and prepare healthy meals. This can lead to poor health outcomes such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
The goal of this website is to teach people how to eat healthy by providing them with easy-to-follow information and resources on how to plan and prepare healthy meals, as well as the benefits of a healthy diet. This will help users make informed decisions about their food choices and ultimately improve their overall health and well-being.
The first step was to conduct user research to understand the needs of the target audience and the current challenges they face when trying to eat healthy food. This include a survey and competitor analysis.
The website and mobile application designed for social good aim to educate and empower individuals to make healthier food choices. The main goal of this project was to improve the overall health and well-being of users by providing them with the information and resources they need to make healthier food choices.
Once the research was completed, the next step was to create wireframes and prototypes of the website and mobile application’s layout and navigation. This involved deciding on the structure and organization of the content, as well as designing the user interface.
