Here’s a handy little app – and perfect for those who want to eat healthier, without the rigors and pitfalls of a structured diet. Fooducate will help you lose weight and improve your overall health simply by making better food choices.
Get the app on your iPhone or Android, then head to the supermarket and start scanning product barcodes. Fooducate will assign each product a letter grade then translate its food label, outlining the products’ nutritional hazards and highlights – such as trans fats, artificial colors or flavors, and added sugars – as well as the realities of its calories per serving. Then – and here’s the cool convenience perk – Fooducate offers better product options, which you’ll find right there in the same grocery aisle.
Users like the fact that Fooducate rates processed and packaged foods which, for better or worse, are staples in most of our daily diets. Recently chosen by Apple as the best health app of the year, Fooducate also won First Place for the Nutrition/Healthy Eating category in the Surgeon General’s 2012 Healthy Apps Challenge.
