CHAT: Connecting Heath And Technology

The purpose of C.H.A.T (Connecting Health and Technology) is to develop a mobile device food record to assess diet and provide feedback on food intake to young adults. Key nutrition messages will be tested and delivered using mobile phone technology as a means of feedback to the participants. Studies have linked poor diet quality and lack of variety with increased incidence of chronic diseases. Currently the tools to assess diet are not well accepted, especially in adolescents and young adults, and this study hopes to overcome this issue.
