    Unhealthy eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle have been identified as the two leading causes of obesity and weight gain in people. While there has been a lot of research on promoting active lifestyles, the area of influencing healthy eating habits is still under-researched. Because people will likely eat what they buy, it is imperative to influence people to shop for healthy foods in order for them to eat healthy foods. The use of a grocery list for planning one’s shopping needs has been shown to influence healthy shopping habits among consumers. To contribute to ongoing research in the area of influencing healthy shopping behaviour, we introduce List It, an app that easily generates a shopping list for users from a list of various options while motivating the consumer to select healthy options to add to the list.
