In our world of rapidly developing technologies, gadgets, devices and, of course, mobile applications for health and nutrition are taking an increasing place. According to statistics, more than 59% of the adult population use smartphones. The WHO estimates that more than 20% of people using phones are constantly using apps for health and healthy food.
The Russian Federation has adopted a policy in the field of healthy nutrition of the population. The goals of the state policy in the field of healthy nutrition are the preservation and strengthening of the health of the population, the prevention of diseases caused by inadequate and unbalanced nutrition. One of the methods of helping the population to switch to a balanced diet is a well-thought-out mobile application.
There is an increasing interest and demand for digital nutrition programs, and the more personalized the program can offer, the better. There is a tendency among the population to resume proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle, in which well-thought-out mobile applications can play an important role. Most mobile nutrition apps offer menus and diets based on height, weight, age and do not take into account many other factors, such as individual daily loads, region of residence, rhythm of life, and the presence of nutritional diseases of the body.
The purpose of this article is to present the results of the development of a project of a mobile application for maintaining healthy nutrition, which will take into account lifestyle, physical activity, climate and many other factors in order to form and offer balanced and functional nutrition for a specific person to maintain health and activity throughout his life.
