Use apps and social networking to let people connect with each other to create and share healthier versions of traditional dishes.

The possibilities are endless. Ideas could include collaborating on making a dish healthier or combining dishes to make new healthier versions.

The social networking aspect would encourage people to talk and share and an app could be used to support this.

What about a bit of a competition? Let the contributors’ vote for their favourite dishes and these can be combined into an online, healthy eating world cookbook that anyone can download.

I'll even kick things off with my veggie shepherd’s pie!

Hi there.
Thanks for the email. I wasn't sure if there was enough interest in my idea but I'd be more than happy to carry on and develop it if you think It has potential.

Best wishes,
