The objective of this research was to develop a system that will enable more research for emotion monitoring and feedback with the long term goal of developing a system that improve the emotional health and overall nutritional well being of an individual. The system estimates the emotion of an individual through the EigenFace Expression Recognition approach developed by Md. Iftekhar Tanveer, and then suggests a list of healthy snacks based on their tastes to an individual to improve their mood through the influence of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This research studied five facial expressions: neutral, anger, happy, disgust and sad, which in return expressed the emotional state of the person.
