mNutrition also known as Mobile Nutrition is a term used for the practice of nutrition in an effort to continually improve the quality of life of the population in the area of community/public health supported by mobile devices. It is commonly used in reference to using mobile communication devices, such as mobile phones, tablet computers for nutrition services and information.
The essence of mNutrition is to cause a change in human behaviour in regards to interaction of nutrients and other substances in food in relation to maintenance, growth, reproduction, health and disease of the population.
Any behaviour that affects health, either positively or negatively can be considered to be a health-related behaviour. It is difficult to imagine any activity or behaviour that does not affect our health in some way, either directly or indirectly. Despite many recent technical breakthroughs in health care, human behaviour remains the largest source of variance in health-related outcomes.
