Healthy Apps

Many free or low-cost applications – or “apps” – are available for your computer or mobile phone to help you stick to a healthy eating plan and make better choices while shopping at the grocery store or eating out.

Fooducate lets shoppers scan a product bar code in the grocery store for an instant read on a food’s health value, represented by a letter grade from A to D. Once a food has been scanned and recognized, the app offers healthier alternatives, and can compare two products side-by-side. The app counts not only nutrients, but also if those nutrients were added in processing, which results in a lower score. Sodium, sugar and saturated fats count against a food; fiber and naturally occurring nutrients count in a food’s favor.
