With 1 in 3 US children now defined as obese or overweight EAT UP is a smart solution to provide data on eating habits and improve dietary health. Through the application of Near Field Communication (NRF) technology and load sensors, the modular design enables stakeholders (caregivers, teachers, parents) to monitor children’s dietary intake. A simple tag on system sends data to the EAT UP App, which is used to recommend healthier menus and bespoke dietary and food intake options. EAT UP’s modular structure can be arranged into various combinations for different meal and snack options.
