VegEze App Can Help Increase Vegetable Intake

Everyone has their favorite vegetable while some are avoided no matter how deliciously it is prepared. To find a solution and to encourage vegetable intake, a dinner table app called VegEze app.

Two out of three Australian adults are not eating enough vegetables which are contributing partly to the nation's health and obesity problems.

VegEze app, developed by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), aims to encourage people to add extra vegetables to their daily diets and promote healthy living.

CSIRO nutritionists will study how effective the app's game-like nature is at changing people's eating patterns as part of a broader research study.

Manny Noakes, CSIRO's senior principal research scientist professor, shared that a fresh approach was required to improve Australia's vegetable consumption and diet quality.

"Our research found that two out of three Australian adults are not eating enough vegetables, especially as part of their evening meal. It's time to find more engaging, effective approaches to help break these entrenched diet habits," she said. 

The app VegEze challenges users to eat three different types of vegetables during their evening meal every day for a period of 21 days. During this period, it will track their intake and tally vegetable serves, with reminders and rewards.

The VegEze app features educational resources, including a visual guide to optimum serve sizes, recipes, and nutritional information.  This can help overcome barriers that hinder vegetable intake.
