Here is my idea for a healthy home.
A cooker that uses sustainable energy and is able to cook varieties of healthy food but do not impede the taste. Busy woman can just put the cooking ingredients according to healthy recipe provided by the cooker and the cooker would do the rest such as cutting, washing and cooking. A cooker that would even be able to count the calories, add in special needs of family members such as allergies and even detect the condition of ingredients (fresh, spoilt or poison).
I choose healthy home because I believe that would benefit the health of our community. Health is gold and it can’t be bought with money. Healthy people are generally happier and lead a fulfill life and thus contribute more to the performance of a country. Besides that not to mention the amount of money that one can save from the medical fee.
I think cultivating good eating habits should be important but due to busy lifestyle or due to lack of knowledge, most parents are unable to provide healthy food for the children. The unhealthy lifestyle combined with adopting unhealthy eating habits would lead to health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure or death later. According to research, one would generally go for healthy snacks if they already adopt it since young. So, I think that having a cooker that will do all the cooking using sustainable energy such as water or sunlight would help most busy woman in general to provide healthy food for the children.
Children that are healthy will tend to be happier and adopt healthy eating habits in their life. It would also save the country from spending billions on healthcare and focus that on improving education or the economy. Not to mention the amount of money healthy citizen can contribute to the country.
Well, I always hope that a magic tool like this would come true one day.
