Abstract:Consuming fruits is very important to maintain health, however, less than a quarter of European young adults consume an adequate amount of fruits. A just-in-time intervention (JITI) can be used to solve this problem because it can give support in an appropriate situation, like a food choice situation. Although just-in-time interventions are useful, they have a lack of user engagement. Therefore, the focus of this research is to create a just-in-time intervention to increase young adults' fruit intake in an engaging way in a home setting. To come up with the best solution, the Creative Technology Design Process, which consists of ideation, specification, realization, and user evaluation, was used. The result of this process is to create a smart fruit bowl that gives a just-in-time reminder to eat fruits when the user is in a dining room. The smart fruit bowl also involved fruit facts as user engagement. After the smart fruit bowl was tested for 7 days, it was discovered that the fruit consumption was not improved, but the participants felt reminded to eat fruits and were aware of the available fruits. The user engagement and redundancy of the reminders need to be addressed in future work.
