Fooducate App



Fooducate helps you make better food choices. Fooducate’s scientific algorithms generate a letter grade (A, B, C, or D) for each product scanned, along with brief explanations and warnings about its nutrients and ingredients. Users are just one click away from viewing similar, but healthier alternatives.
This is a website and iPhone/Android app that rates food products. It helps you make better food choices at the grocery store based on a variety of different criteria. I like how they explain in easy-to-understand sentences what’s good and bad.

Grade: A-
Lists all the nutrition info and ingredients.
Then it says, “Nice! 100% whole grain” and “Less than 1.5 tsp of sugar. Nice.”

Definitely check it out! Look up some of the foods you always buy, and see how they score. Can you choose something better?
