Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Tattoos and Markers
Tattoos and markers will help encourage young children to eat more fresh foods in two ways:
1) EDUCATE PARENTS. Markers will indicate healthy food pairings and recipe suggestions (cucumbers and yogurt, carrots and hummus, tomatoes and cheese, etc).
2) EXCITE CHILDREN. Once parents have more knowledge and ideas as to what healthy snacks may be, they can buy tattoos so their children can customize their fresh foods making them more fun to eat.
Food markers and tattoos will inspire parents to create recipes using fresh foods. Recipe and snack ideas can be "written" on fresh foods with as part of a 'Jamie Oliver Food Revolution Program'. This makes the markers part of an overall program not just a stand alone gimmick. The tattoos (branded or unbranded) then serve to entice children to eat more of the fruits and veggies their parents are now purchasing. The tattoos can be sold separately or can come already applied on the fresh foods by corporate sponsors. Corporate sponsors may be encouraged to donate some proceeds from the sales toward nonprofits and farms that are driving the healthy food movement forward.
Children can customize their vegetables with branded icons, their names, and other fun facts

Age of kids. The solutions to changing kids’ eating behaviors will vary depending on their age. What works for a toddler won’t necessarily fly for a teenager, although we suspect some concepts might be appropriate for all ages—even adults! Which age bracket does your concept address (tick all relevant boxes)?
Pre-school (Tots) 2-4
Elementary (Kids) 5-10
Middle school (Tweens) 11-13
Hurdles to success. Helping kids make smarter food choices comes with a variety of hurdles that have to be addressed in order for a design solution to be successful, which of these do you think that your Concept overcomes (tick all relevant boxes)?
