Abstract

Poor diet and lack of exercise has caused obesity to become a major health threat for children in many affluent countries. Hong Kong is no exception. Since overweight children are at higher risk for various health problems, it is necessary to help them to develop healthy life style from early age. Education on balanced diet as well as the importance of physical activities is hence considered to be a crucial part of school curriculum. This paper is an account of a project that aims to produce relevant software on nutrition and physical activities for learning and teaching these aspects in schools.
