What's Appening: Put Healthy In

Fooducate®

Fooducate, like many health and nutrition apps, allows users to keep track of food intake, exercise and calories. But one of our favorite additional features is that Fooducate gives users a letter grade, A-D, to help users determine whether the food they’re eating is good for them. The app also offers an easy-to-understand summary of nutrition information, and, if the food(s) receives a low grade, the app provides users with healthy alternatives. Other features include a food finder, community support, a daily tip and a health tracker. Cost: Free, with in-app purchases. 



ShopWell®

With the idea that if users shop well, they will eat well, app designers YottaMark created an app that provides you with your own “shopping assistant.” Simply scan the barcode of your selected food, and the app will rate the food based on the nutritional needs you’ve specified, like celiac disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, or a desire to eat only vegan or vegetarian foods. Select a food like Honey Nut Cheerios, for example, and the app will score it and offer suggested brands or items that may be better for you. ShopWell also entices users with “Tango Cards” that can be redeemed for gift cards in exchange for providing feedback to participating companies. Cost: Free.
