Fooducate

In this world of technology overload, I have found a positive to my smart phone that is quite helpful.  FOODUCATE is a fabulous app for all our wellness patients and website followers to use.  Here is a little information about this app and how/why to get started using it.  It not only grades nutritional content of the items at the grocery store, it allows you to scan the barcode and get the information right on your phone.  Then you can search for alternative, healthier options based on their suggestions.  It’s ingenious!  Why didn’t I think of this first?

Get the Fooducate mobile application and use it to:

  • Automatically scan a product barcode
  • See product highlights (both good & bad)
  • Compare products
  • Select better alternatives
  • Dig deeper and learn more about food and nutrition

Features:

  • Created by dietitians and concerned parents
  • Uses your mobile’s camera to effortlessly scan UPC barcode
  • Over 200,000 unique products and growing daily
  • Simplified information helps you make better choices
  • Works on iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Android OS version 2.2 and up

This is what is nice about this app

You get to see the stuff manufacturers don’t want you to notice, such as

  • excessive sugar
  • tricky trans fats
  • additives and preservatives
  • high fructose corn syrup
  • controversial food colorings
  • confusing serving sizes
  • and more…

Read the labels or let fooducate do it for you.  And remember, eat your veggies people.  Eat your veggies!

      Thanks girl! Michelle and I are scanning everything we find–unfortunately, the hospital cafeteria has nothing above a C at this point! And this is where we go to get healthy!
