If you have children, you understand the challenges that come with mealtime—fussy eaters, slow eaters, distracted eaters. Keeping our kids focused on food consumption often leaves parents with indigestion or a complete loss of appetite. Well the team at Yumit has found a way to gamify grub. Using technology to help kids get the goodness they need, each gram of food they eat is transformed in real time into virtual energy that can be used in interactive games across different devices. Designed to withstand the mealtime assault, it’s a fascinating innovation, turning sensor technology and data into a platform for better nutrition and more pleasurable meals.
