In Japan, like other industrialized nations, kids’ poor dietary habits are a growing problem, with many children preferring snacks and processed foods over balanced meals. Otsuka Pharmaceutical launched a collaborative initiative to foster healthy engagement with nutrition. SketchCook is a mobile app that transforms kids’ food pictures into actual recipes via a machine learning system and image translator that convert doodles into appetizing images before matching them to a massive recipe database to find the closest, healthiest fit. This playful application of technology engaged children and sparked a conversation around child nutrition, earning uptake by schools in several Japanese cities.
