The aim of the ENRICH project was to develop and validate a tool/metrics that can provide reliable information on fruit and vegetable intake and food choice motives from urban consumers in Nairobi, Kenya. Within ENRICH, a mobile phone application was developed that measured fruit and vegetable intake and food choice motives. In addition, food intake and food choice motives surveys were conducted and a skin measurement to validate the results of the mobile phone app.
