... but these new tools are also a boon for operations.
Jamie Robins's insight:

This article highlights how technology is being used to lure customers into restaurants and in particular, fast-food eating establishments.Technology called "mobile presence technologies," communicates a customer's proximity to a restaurant location. This is then used to entice customers to visit.

The available technologies falls into two buckets: Automatic or user-prompted.

Interesting to see where this leads.........

Again, I think this is a great step forward. As someone who reads labels constantly (food allergy) I know I am often confused by the breakdown of fats and sugars. It would be great to see this made obvious by manufacturers, instead of trying to hide the truth from consumers.

Jamie Robins's curator insight, March 10, 2014 8:22 AM

This looks like a great resource to support the teaching and learning activities associated with healthy food, understanding nutrition and investigating food and fibre production and food technologies in modern and traditional societies as noted in the new Technologies curriculum (ACARA, 2014 ACTDEK012).

Emma Salter's curator insight, May 27, 2014 1:00 AM

Nourish Interactive, a one stop site developed for the Queensland Government was shared by Jamie Robinson.  This resource includes free printable sheets on food labelling, food facts and nutrition charts.  The three main sections cover healthy food, healthy habits and kids activities.  The nutrition games of food groups, balanced meals and healthy messages encourage children to not only engage with cooking activities but ensure that children read through the instructions given.  This free resource encourages children to be aware of their own nourishment whilst providing fun interactive resources, not only has the website been created by nutrition and health care professionals, whilst having the seal of approval from the ‘Mum’s Choice Award’.  This resource would be relevant for Foundation to Year 4 students.

This sounds like something that ALL children should be made aware of. Know what you eat.

This could link in nicely with a Science and maths cross curricular unit of work that also uses the Technology curriculum.

Curriculum link: Digital technologies Year 3 and 4

Collect, access and present different types of data using simple software to create information and solve problems (ACTDIP009)

Although the intro is a little 'cheesy' the idea is great. Aimed at the Year level I am interested in (Year 3 and 4), this seems like a valuable resource tool to support the learning of investigating labels on food products and understanding nutrition panels on packaging.

Jennifer Vellacott's comment, June 6, 2014 9:31 PM
This sounds really helpful, Jamie. Advertisers are so deceptive these days, it is really hard to find useful nutritional information and sort it from the hype. Good find.

People who read food labels stay thinner, study finds

An international team of scientists headed from the University of Santiago de Compostela has found that reading the labels on food products is linked to obesity prevention, especially in women. According to the study which used data from the United States, female consumers who consult food labels weigh nearly 4 kilograms less.Along with the Universities of Tennessee, Arkansas (USA) and the Norwegian Institute for Agricultural Finance Research, the University of Santiago de Compostela has participated in a study on the relationship between reading the food label and obesity.

 

The results indicated that the body mass index of those consumers who read that label is 1.49 points lower than those who never consider such information when doing their food shopping. This translates as a reduction of 3.91 kg for an American woman measuring 1.62 cm and weighing 74 kg.

The data was taken from the annual National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) performed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC -- http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nhis.htm). Some 25,640 observations were collected on health and eating and shopping habits. These included various questions on whether participants read the nutritional information in supermarkets and how often.

One can argue about the "cause and effect" relationship here - but what really counts is the result, doesn't it?
