Nikolaou, Charoula Konstantia; Tay, Zoey; Leu, Jodie; Rebello, Salome; Morenga, Lisa Te; van Dam, Rob M; Lean, Michael Ernest John

Description

Background: Effective prevention at a young enough age is critical to halt the obesity epidemic. Mobile health (mHealth) apps would potentially reach large numbers at low-cost. While there is already a profusion of lifestyle apps, they are mostly non-evidence-based and evidently ineffective against rising obesity prevalence.
