XUESHI is a family interactive dietary education product for preschool children aged 3-6. It aims to help preschool children understand the role of food and the harm of bad dietary behaviors to the body through this product, so that children can learn a reasonable diet from an early age. The product creates a situation of eating problems through animation, and puts forward requirements to let children choose the correct food model to interact, solve physical symptoms, and let children acquire food knowledge. In the process, parents can make some supplements on the side to help preschoolers better understand.

Project Description

This program can help children learn to eat, develop good eating habits and learn food knowledge from childhood. On the one hand, it can help reduce obesity, malnutrition and other problems, and on the other hand, it can help children learn to eat better in the future.

This is mainly designed for preschool children aged 3-6 years, but the use of this product requires the integration of parents. It is a family interactive product.

It can attract children to play, learn about diet, and let children remember the benefits of food through easy to understand methods.

The program observed the dietary behavior of children aged 3-6 years, and determined the content of dietary education. On this basis, I conducted research on children’s psychology and physiology, as well as pre-school education theory. I explored the way of children’s interaction, interviewed users, deliberated on the scheme, and constrained the product according to ergonomics. Finally, the user test is carried out and good feedback is obtained.
