Researchers explored studies carried out and discussed during the workshop entitled 'Food for Thought: Designing for Critical Reflection on Food Practices' at the 2012 Designing Interactive Systems Conference held in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. The workshop brought together people from industry and academia, across disciplines including HCI, architecture, and psychology. These professionals considered the challenges, successes, practices, and future directions of designing digital interactive systems to engage people in critical reflection toward positive changes in their everyday food practices. The participants wanted to find ways to promote more environmentally aware, socially inclusive, and healthier food practices through critical reflection. Critical reflection referred to the kind of thinking that consisted of turning a subject over in the mind and giving it serious and consecutive consideration.
