Rates of adolescent obesity remain high throughout the United States. While Vermont fares better than other states, 12.4% of high school students in the state are obese. This project sought to harness teens' frequent use of smartphones to communicate important nutrition information and promote healthy eating patterns. A search was conducted for nutrition-related iPhone and Android applications to create a list for distribution to adolescent patients at South Burlington Family Practice.
