A Game-based Technology Solution to Incite Children to Take Daily Breakfast with Healthy Food
We propose a multimedia-based interactive game that incites elementary school children in Qatar to take regularly the daily breakfast before going to school. It also promotes physical activities and healthy food and shows the strong connection between them. Before playing the game, the children learn about the importance of breakfast within a family setting through multimedia tutorials developed with the assistance of a nutritionist and special education instructors. The children will then be required to solve some exercises to select the healthy items that enhance the intake of more fruits and vegetables. The game is relatively simple and doesn't require deep knowledge to play it. The game is targeting the obesity disease and the malnutrition habits and sedentary lifestyle that affect an important number of children and adolescent in the country. 1 2017 IEEE.
