Childhood obesity has become a major problem around the world. In many cases children develop unhealthy eating patterns, resulting in excess energy intake, because they eat alone without their parents or teachers advice (e.g. at school). In this paper we present a mobile health architecture intended to prevent childhood obesity by promoting good health behaviors with a set of mHealth applications. These applications and architecture provide proper capturing data and user interfaces especially suited for children; they also provide notifications and messages from adults to improve results.
