“Food Switch” app from Bupa

“Food Switch” app from Bupa

You can scan in a barcode to your i-phone or Android and the tool will tell you if it is a healthy choice using a traffic light system. It also tells you better choices between brands.

I prefer to interpret this info myself by reading the nutrient panel (we usually discuss this on your fourth Dietitian visit) and have found traffic light guides too simplistic.

There is an extensive FAQ that make it sound good – I will download and check it our myself. But, if you try it, let us all know if you find it useful. The app is free.
