Fooducate App

If you’re making an effort to eat healthier, the new app Fooducate can come in handy at the grocery store. For packaged foods, use the camera on your phone to scan a product’s UPC code from within the app. If it is in their database it will open up a report on the product complete with a letter grade for how healthy it is. (Learn how they determine those grades here.) It will also give you consumer reviews and information on specific ingredients.

What do you think of this app? Is it something you would use while shopping for groceries?
