This product would be the best solution for this issue. The Om Nom NoMonitor would be represented most accurately and commercially feasible by a smartphone and downloadable app. The key aspects of this solution are Science and Technology. Sciencetifically, the project must incorporate Food Science and Nutritional Science to catalog the various qualities different foods possess and how that affects health. Technology is the major element, as new software must be either created or adapted, along
