Abstract

The WHO European Childhood Obesity Surveillance Initiative (or COSI), reports that in the fourth round of data collection (2015 - 2017) one in three children aged from six to nine years is living with overweight or obesity [1]. Today it is broadly accepted that overweight and obesity are largely preventable if better healthcare strategies are adopted and innovative interventions are introduced [1], [2]. A promising technology that can help children and their immediate environment adopt WHO-recommended measures and provide nutritional counselling are Voice-based Conversational Agent (VCA). In this work, the service design thinking paradigm [3] is applied to design and develop a new VCA-based service. The main findings of the process are presented along with the key observation that drove the development of the proposed service.
