In this paper we present the concept of Incidental Mobile Healthcare, as part of a design background to inform the development of mobile applications whose primary purpose is not to provide healthcare. We discuss how non-health related applications could be used as hosts to provide incidental healthcare information (healthy info-snacks) to support the naturally occurring pattern of interaction bursts that users display with their mobile devices.
