Fooducate app

Get nutritional information on the food you buy and track what you eat with the Fooducate app for iPhone/iPad and Android devices, to get nutritional information and track what you eat. It give a “food grade” on food you buy in the grocery store when you scan the product barcode.  The app advises you of important things to know about the product, such as if it’s highly processed of if it contains whole grain.

The other part of the app is a health tracker that provides students a way to keep of the food they eat and and the amount of exercise they get.

This app is tremendously useful as part of a unit on nutrition in health class.  Students could use it to “grade” the foods they commonly eat during a week, and become more conscious of their food choices, as well as the amount of exercise they get.
