Abstract

The increase in obesity prevalence in adolescents is caused by passive overconsumption, such as the intake of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSB). There are limited useful applications that can help people to monitor calories and sugar from drinks. We aimed to investigate the SSB application requirement, develop, and explore the acceptance of a prototype SSB application. This study was conducted in three stages: formative research, development, and acceptance of the prototype application. The formative research employed qualitative methods to provide information from 17-22 years in Medan to plan the application development. The stage of development included selecting a developer, selecting the programming language, and designing the application. An acceptance test was performed among 100 adolescents in Medan afterward. Participants required an informative, easy, and exciting application. EduDrink is a prototype application to monitor calorie and sugar intake of SSB that has simple features, educational videos, notifications, a food database, estimated portion sizes, and regular monitoring charts. The EduDrink prototype has excellent acceptance regarding content, graphic, and flow applications. This prototype can be further developed into a mobile application for validation in obesity management
