Food Group Display

$79 / year

The dataset provides information on total calories, calories from “extras” (solid fats and added sugars), and MyPyramid food groups for over 1,000 commonly eaten foods. Innovative and creative tools and games are being sought that use the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) dataset to deliver nutrition and health concepts in a fun and engaging way, which is part of the former First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign.

Complexity

The Apps for Healthy Kids competition is a part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign to end childhood obesity within a generation. Apps for Healthy Kids challenges software developers, game designers, students, and other innovators to develop fun and engaging software tools and games that drive children, especially “tweens” (ages 9-12) – directly or through their parents – to eat better and be more physically active.

Childhood obesity or excess weight threatens the healthy future of one-third of American children. Approximately $150 billion is spent every year to treat obesity-related conditions, and that number is growing. Obesity rates tripled in the past 30 years, a trend that means, for the first time in history, American children may face a shorter expected lifespan than their parents. Tools and games should be built using the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) nutrition dataset recently made available to the public through the Open Government Initiative.

FactorThis field is not needed for dataset use. It is a “check” field for developers that indicates the difference between the standard measure code and the default portion provided in the dataset. For example, a standard measure for 1 fluid ounce is “3000,” and if the factor is 8, then the default portion should be 8 x 1 fluid ounce, or 8 fluid ounces.number-

IncrementThis field tells what increments portion options should be provided for users to choose from. An increment of .25 with a default portion of 1 cup would move the portion options up or down in ¼ cup increments, while an increment of 1 for a default portion of 8 fluid ounces would move the portion options up or down in 1 fluid ounce increments.numberrequired : 1

MultiplierThis field tells what factor to multiply all of the food group and nutrient values by, and then add or subtract from the default amounts, for a single increment change in the portion option. For example, if the increment is .25, the food group values will be multiplied by .25 and then added to the default value if the increment moves up by one unit, or subtracted if the increment moves down.numberrequired : 1
