Hello! Today we have a guest post from writer Mark Bailey, foodie, travel junkie and an amateur mountain climber – here to tell us all about an exciting new food app called FOODUCATE…
The Fooducate App: Making Sure You Feed Your Family Right
The task of making sure that you’re eating healthy and getting enough exercise is already tough enough when you’re managing your own diet and exercise regimen, but the challenge is amplified when you’re trying to make sure that your family is on the right track to wellness too. This can be an immense source of stress for mums, and we need all the help we can get, from whatever sources – even mobile apps.
The mobile revolution has been felt in all industries, and many wellness professionals now look towards using mobile phones to help people stay healthy. The most important way to do this is by promoting the spread of information, and when it comes to making information available, there are a variety of ways to do this. When mobile gaming website Pocket Fruity launched their slew of casino titles, they chose to go down a path common to many developers: developing their content in HTML5 so that it can be accessed through any browser, on any device. Others go down a more familiar path, launching dedicated mobile applications that can be downloaded for mobile markets. FueltheBodyWell.com has done the latter, launching Digestion Zone to help users manage their food intake while in the Digestion Zones, and many different apps also have a variety of uses.
Mums may find themselves benefiting from an app that helps make the task of shopping for food for their family easier. Fooducate, a service that started out as a community trying to make sense of the nutritional information on the back of packages, has sought out to fulfill this for us, launching apps on both the Google Play Store and the iTunes App Store so that their services can be enjoyed by smartphone users everywhere.
The Fooducate app allows easy barcode scanning so you can use it at grocery stores. All you need to do is scan the barcode of a product you’re thinking of buying, and the app gives it a nutritional grade so you can easily tell if it’s good for you. It also has a built-in health tracker for keeping track of calories, some great healthy recipes, and an easy way to get in touch with the community at Fooducate so you can get hints and tips for healthy eating.
It’s certainly great news for mums that they now have the option to consult apps like these, making managing their family’s health easier than ever and extremely cost-effective.
Thank you, Mark!
