ALVAREZ SABUCEDO, Luis et al. E-services platform for child-oriented nutritional education and health. Salud Colectiva [online]. 2011, vol.7, suppl.1, pp.S71-S81. ISSN 1851-8265. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1851-82652011000400008.
A good diet is one of the pillars for ensuring the proper physical and intellectual development of children. In a society in which schooling is initiated at increasingly early ages, the coordination between school and family acquires a vital role in assuring proper child nourishment and care. This article presents the foundations of a multi-device web platform that fosters the collaboration and nutritional training of the different actors (parents, educators, specialists) involved in the processes of care and education of children. The platform uses the latest advances in the field of semantic technologies to improve the accuracy of the recommendations made automatically by the system.
