Would a well-designed interface for a food database help people better understand what they are consuming?

We are living in times when 2% of the U.S. population is producing food for the other 98%. Technology has changed our way of producing food, but still has a very small role in informing us what exactly we are eating. Can design step in to help here? Can good design raise the awareness of what we are consuming? I think yes, and I will tell you how. Using apples.

Session Takeaways

  • Is it possible to make informed choices about our consumption while considering one's budget and improving the grocery shopping experience?
  • Can a well-designed (user-friendly) product raise awareness about eating habits among people less inclined to educate themselves otherwise?
