“Deliciously Illustrated SketchCook – A nutritious experiment with Google” is a dietary education app that transforms children’s illustrations of meals into images accompanied by nutritionally balanced recipes and appropriate side dishes.
Focusing expertise in nutritional education, Otsuka Pharmaceutical has adopted machine-learning technology provided by Google and obtained cooperation from Rakuten Recipe to create the SketchCook app.
In addition to offering an entertaining way for children to learn the importance of nutritional balance, the SketchCook app is conceived to promote parent-child communication regarding meals and nutrition.

Adopting machine-learning technology provided by Google and data from extensive Rakuten Recipe*1 archives, SketchCook uses photographs of children’s illustrations of their favorite meals to identify menu items and transform them into images resembling actual dishes. Emphasizing the importance of nutritional balance, the dietary education app also provides recipes for the main dishes and suggestions for side dishes to achieve optimum nutritional balance.
