Some awesome apps for teaching nutrition to students.

Sunday, July 8, 2012

There are some great apps for helping students with eating and nutrition. Many of these apps have IOS and Android apps.  You are only limited by your imagination.  Have students bring in a bunch of their favorite snacks and scan them with the fooducate app, or maybe have them track their exercise and intake using the Lose It app. Here are a few to get you started:

gomeals.com has the Go Meals HD App It is a great app to track food and diet and create awareness of eating habits. They have an app for the iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

fooducate.com Has a great app that allows kids to scan the food bar code and gives it a grade. It was awarded the Appstore 2011 best of the iPhone Health & Fitness category. Download it here

Diary Ping Allows you to find out where your milk comes from. It's great teaching students that milk does not come from a bottle, and finding out if it is locally produced.

Lose It! is a simple app with the concept of calories in and calories out.  It combines nutrition and exercise.
