What does the app do?

Wello is an app which supports parents and caregivers to plan, monitor and assess their child eating and activity patterns. The primary aim of the app is to create an eating and activity plan for children which caregivers can monitor. The plan is based of a brief assessment of weight, height, gender, age and food preferences. It includes meals and recipes. Daily, weekly, monthly and annual reports on progress are available. Additional features include online learning on weight management and child nutrition topics for caregivers, ability to add multiple children, track activity and goals as a family. You can track the time, date, meal the child ate for the limited recipe database but not the amount eaten or any additional foods outside of the recipe database.
