A device like an apple watch or fitbit that can monitor your food intake. You set your calorie desire per meal for a day and it tracks and give you vibration when you hit your limit. This should begin to train people not only how much they need to eat, but also will build healthier habits in general.

What early, lightweight experiment might you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?

Posters in restaurants that show what a healthy portion looks like in comparison to what is normally consumed. If the marketing or design can be built correctly it could have a huge impact.

What skills, input or guidance from the OpenIDEO community would be most helpful in building out or refining your idea?
