Healthy home cooking is essential for maintaining long-term health. Although most family cooks are willing to learn healthy cooking, they often have difficulty applying this knowledge. A smart kitchen with pervasive computing technology provides nutritional information to family cooks to help them make informed decisions about healthy cooking in their cultural and habitual context. The iterative design process yields interesting challenges in embedding technologies for a home activity such as cooking.
