Nutrition – Sammy Cordero – 2nd Proposal

User: City Tech students and Faculty.

Context: The school cafeteria and website does not display any nutritional information about the food they serve. The cafeteria and website needs to offer the nutritional information of the food,  so that students and staff could make healthy choices.

Motivation: The students and staff are making misinformed decisions because of the lack of information offered. Obesity is an epidemic in the United States that causes life threatening health problems to help combat obesity people need to make informed decision about the food that they eat.

Solution:  To tackle this problem I propose that we create a menu on the school website that offers all the nutritional content in the food being served in the cafeteria every day. Also I propose that we place a flat screen monitor in the cafeteria that displays the menu, and nutritional content of the food served (Ex. Calories, Vitamins, Cholesterol).

Outcome: By providing the nutritional facts about the food being served in the City tech cafeteria students and faculty will be empowered to make healthier choices. These changes could help the school combat obesity.
