Who is the target audience for your idea and how does it inspire the end user to lead a healthier life?

Target audience diverse multicultural backgrounds with different dishes. If the dishes are high calorie on this platform a healthier version could be shared, if it a healthy dish that has been passed on that could be shared as well. This will be a great way to inspire the end user to eat what they love whiles leading a healthier life. A great platform to pick up on global recipes! Acknowledgement-Laurier MBA- Creativity in Marketing group (Spring 2015)

The target group are cultures(Mexico, Italy) with different ethnic foods or specialties. They taste so good but calorie content is very high. Therefore this platform will be used to present ideas on how to make the a healthier version of these dishes!

Example: I hail from Ghana and one of my favorite dishes is Jollof rice, fried chicken and vegetables! Calorie 481 cal. On this platform a recipe for Quinoa Jollof, baked chicken and vegetables could be presented @ 260 cal.

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

I have already tried the Jollof rice and chicken. I will connect with friends from different backgrounds to prepare a health dish that has been passed on or a dish that they modify to make it healthier but still tastes great!-

This idea emerged from

Great idea post Lydia! We also think your idea could work well in tandem with these two ideas: https://openideo.com/challenge/healthy-lives/ideas/end-to-end-healthy-substitution-campaigns and https://openideo.com/challenge/healthy-lives/ideas/healthy-traditional-food-network-1 Given collaboration is the name of the game here at OpenIDEO, we hope you might reach out and collaborate to grow each other's concepts!
