Nowadays, people give more attention to their health including their food intake. Unfortunately, this awareness is not supported by adequate knowledge on the food quality itself and how much they need to take thus causing a high case of malnutrition. Malnutrition or ‘wrong diet’ can be either an excessive consumption or insufficient consumption. Both cases of malnutrition can cause a lot of health problems such as osteoporosis, high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol level, etc. and for extreme cases it may lead to death. To get a healthy body, we need the right diet for our body, which may vary from one individual to another, since our body may have different need of the diet. There are several factors to consider each individual’s need on certain diet affecting our body nutrition requirements such as age, sex, body weight, body height, and activity. An information system is needed to help people getting an ideal diet which is suitable with their body needs. An interactive and practical website is made to fulfill this need. In this website, people can input their data (age, sex, body weight, body and height) and know their nutrition requirements. Moreover, this website will provide some random daily food menus which are suitable for them.
