Bear Down Nutrition
Team members: Sarah DeVore, Jacob Cusick, Victoria McCabe, Rob Garcia
For our showcase project we proposed the idea for a smartphone app that helps students get access and gain knowledge on how to eat better on campus. The app would include basic nutritious information about the different venues on or near campus including the non-chain affiliated and campus specific sites. The app would also allow users to enter their own filters and search for food items from the university’s venues that met their restrictions i.e. peanut allergy, calorie count, gluten free, etc. We have noticed that although the campus' student union website does have the information provided, it is slightly outdated and difficult to access. The “Bear Down Nutrition” app would be an effective tool for students and other university members to have and it would be more than beneficial to students and faculty especially those living on campus.
