Keep your nutrition on track
Fooducate is an app that puts a health coach at your fingertips. It provides all things fooducation. The company's mission is “to help people improve their health through better food choices”. It has a long history of helping people lose weight, but it goes beyond that. This is an application that teaches people how to eat for health. Patients can enter in their stats and nutrition goals and receive a tailored plan. Bar codes from food packages can be scanned in to analyze how healthy the product is. The app analyzes the food and gives it a grade A through D depending on its health benefits. This allows patients to educate themselves on healthy choices. The app promises to help people understand the quality of the calories they are eating not just the quantity. This is especially useful for patients with chronic illness. Nutrition is a very important part of staying healthy. The app was given 1st prize at the US Surgeon General Healthy App Challenge.
