Update 17/08/15

We met up again last week to further refine our idea.

We went back to our original question 'How might we encourage kids to eat healthy food when their parents are at work' to check that our idea was answering the question - and it wasn't!

So we created a second user journey based on the child getting recipe and music suggestions whilst at home, doing homework. We then highlighted 2 areas to prototype with post-it notes - Juan and his Dad setting up the app (we felt Juan should be included in the set up so that he can select his favourite activities and music) and a text message work flow for when Juan receives text messages with suggestions.

We also very quickly prototyped the app using POP app.

The next stage would be to put the app and text message prototype into the end-users hands. For this we need help from the OI community. Maybe there some members in the US in the user group or have friends and family in the user group? We could send the POP app over to get some feedback on the app. But maybe even more importantly we could make some marketing materials or flyers to clearly communicate the service to the end user for feedback. I think a few iterations of user testing/feedback would really help us to refine the idea by ironing out the problems and filling in the blanks.
