Niels van Hoof, a Dutsch design student, has created an innovative teaching app called 'Taggie' that educates children on grocery store foods.

Designed for a graduation project at the Design Academy in Eindhoven, Niels van Hoof's Taggie smartphone app can be used to provide kids with information on fruits and vegetables, their origins, how they are grown and the different types and varieties. To use the app, you just have to aim the smartphone camera at the product's barcode, or tag, and scan it. Then, a 3D augmented reality animation pops up with the food's information.

Niels van Hoof hopes that by delivering information to children in an entertaining way such as this will encourage them to eat more healthy foods.
