Food ordering has been familiar nowadays. Everyone is very
concerned about time and the necessities of life such as food. The food
ordering application helps people to get their food easily and save lots
of time. Most of the existing food ordering applications only focused on
registered restaurants or food providers based on the specific location.
However, there is no special food ordering application that focused on
food ordering for school students and canteen food provider in
Malaysia. Even though many food ordering applications are available
to be used, the most apparent drawback to food ordering applications
is that students are unable to use them during breaks at the school.
Due to this problem, a mobile application named as Mobile School
Canteen Food Ordering System is proposed as an alternative to the
school students in selecting and ordering the food offered by the school
canteen food provider. In addition, with the implementation of
collaborative filtering technique, this system offered one additional
function that will recommend the user on healthy meal that the children
should consume according to the provided criteria such as foods that
contain allergens. This project will benefit many students especially in
primary schools whereas 75% of the respondents have agreed that the
system is effective in choosing foods easily, facilitate and save their
time to get food during breaks.
