What was your first your first year of university like? Do remember what it was like? How healthy do you think your nutritional habits were?
According to research, only 13.2% of students meet Canada’s Food Guide Nutrition Guidelines (Kotila, 2019)! University is a critical period in the life of young adults for many reasons, and one that is commonly overlooked in my opinion relates to students’ food choices and their relationship with weight gain (Sogari, 2018). Frequently, behaviours established during this time can help or hinder them well into their adult lives if not the rest of their lives (Abraham, 2018). Many students struggle with achieving and maintaining a healthy weight owing to their dietary habits in post-secondary school.
Now how do you think students would feel if we could help them and change this? That is why I created “FOODIKI”.
“FOODIKI” is the name of my venture in learning technology. “FOODIKI” will redefine the student experience and positively support, influence and improve student eating habits and nutritional knowledge from the time they begin their post-secondary education to beyond graduation and even for the rest of their lives.
