7-year old boy from Hyderabad launches an app promoting healthy eating

A 7-year old tech prodigy has created an app that helps in recording nutrition that kids get in their tiffin box. The app aims to solve the problem of parents that do their best to ensure that their kids get required nutrition on a daily basis.

It is a difficult job for parents to give healthy tiffin to kids as they tend to eat junk food. A 7-year old Siddhanth Nair from Hyderabad identified the problem and created the Nutrition App. The school that Siddhanth attends, Ambitious World School follows a healthy tiffin routine for kids. Siddhanth wanted to create an app to promote healthy eating among kids.

The 7-year old has learned coding on WhiteHat Jr, an EdTech startup that teaches coding to kids of the age between 6 to 14. The platform has created learning resources for kids in technologies like space tech, AI, robotics, and machine learning. The startup company aims to harness the natural creativity of kids and shift their mindset to become entrepreneurs and innovators at an early age.

Karan Bajaj, Founder, and CEO of WhiteHat Jr said, “Kids now days have an evolved sense of right and wrong, and they want to contribute in their own way to address issues in our society. Kids as young as 6-year-old can start to learn coding to prepare them for the future and like Siddhant, we are already seeing many young kids creating some extremely creative, high utility digital applications that will make a long-term impact on the world.”

To tackle the challenge of teaching coding to young kids, WhiteHat Jr has taken the program to schools across the country. The platform is also starting a 15-under-15 fellowship to help top 15 kids to incubate their own startup.
