There has been recent work in assessing the nutritional value of food by determining the number of servings of fruit, vegetables, and nuts in the dish. While there is still ongoing research into how to use this information to rate or classify foods, a universal challenge for nutritionists seeking to conduct studies on complex, mixed dishes is the separation of the meal into its constituent parts for assessment. This project seeks to develop a tool to expedite the separation and quantification of the fruits, vegetables, and nuts in a mixed dish.
