Healthtricous

Healthricous will introduce a digital solution that makes shopping, cooking and keeping track of the daily food intake easy and accessible.

As part of the EIT’s Crisis Response Initiative, this activity directly contributes to the European Union’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The more COVID-19 is studied, the more it becomes clear that there is a link between the impact of the virus and the health status of patients. Infected patients in good health generally show light symptoms. However, males in particular who are overweight suffer from far worse symptoms. On top of that, anxiety regarding the virus may cause food cravings, resulting in weight gain. This project will introduce a digital solution that makes shopping, cooking and keeping track of one’s daily food intake easy and accessible, taking personal preferences, intolerances and allergies into account. In addition, the science-based app will provide inspiration for recipes, shopping lists, alternatives in case of allergies and intolerances and basic FAQ's. The app will be tailored towards consumers who are not yet ready to seek professional advice, but aware they must change their lifestyle, empowering them to pursue a healthy and balanced diet.
