Many food choices are made online. Interactive, personalized interfaces, such as recommender systems, can help users to f!nd new products to eat or recipes to cook, but they tend to promote unhealthy alternatives. In this position paper, we argue that better algorithms are not the only way forward. We blend algorithms and user interface design to present a multi-list recommender interface that presents multiple lists of personalized items in a single interface, where each list is optimized for a speci!c feature (e.g., ‘less fat’). We argue how multi-list recommenders can be used to support healthier food choices.
