Are you eating right?
The Wheel of Nutrition is a dining plate that reminds us of the fundamental values of nutrition.
Obesity is a severe problem in some of todays commuities. Using visualization to support healthier eating habits is a great opportunity to ignite change in this area. The plate collection “Wheel of Nutrition” created by Hafsteinn Juliusson, Rui Pereira and Joana Pais, is one attempt to tackle this problem.
I think we all agree that the charts are rather jokey than scientific — pizza slice-shaped steak, anyone? Nonetheless I like the idea behind it even if the execution fails to convey useful information.
Are there any working examples of information visualization to support a healty diet beside the standard facts table? I would love to see examples of compelling ingredients tables, nutrition facts and the likes.
