Food for mood

Designing for the care-free emotional eating.


Mood and eating behaviour are inextricably linked. We often use food when we want to improve our mood of make a good feeling feel even better. When we do, we generally don’t go for the healthiest options on the menu. We pick something that’s too high in fat or too sweet. It’s therefore no surprise that nutritional scientists have proven that emotional eating has many negative effects. These include increased risk of obesity, cardiovascular disease and depressive disorders.
