Provide easy food options that meet your nutritional goals
Proper nutrition is a key pillar to a healthy life. Often reaching nutritional goals of protein, caloric intake, and other factors can be difficult to track. Especially at dining commons with the variety of foods provided, creating a well balanced plate may be overwhelming for some.
With Food for You we are able to help people reach nutritional goals by instantly organizing a set of potential meals.
We found a public data set on nutritional facts for different foods. Then we developed an algorithm to match the user's nutritional goals with the correct food.
