The ShopWell app is the best new way to determine what sort of foods to purchase for your family. Below is a step-by-step example of how this app works. The best part…. it’s free!
Step 1: Determine your age and gender. The choices range from “under 1 yr” to “50+.” The checkmarks show what choices I made.
Step 2: Determine your goals. The goals range from Type 1&2 diabetes to high blood pressure to lactose intolerance.
Step 3: Choose what nutrients you want in your foods.
Step 4: Chose what nutrients you don’t want in your foods.
Step 5: Chose the category of food you are interested in. I chose “snack foods” then “cereal bars”
Step 6: This is a list of the foods the app tells me are the best match for my criteria. The higher the number, the better the match.
Step 7: I chose the “Go Raw Granola Bar.” The app will then tell me why this was a match to my preset criteria. It will also tell you the nutrition facts and ingredients.
Step 8: Go to the grocery store, purchase and enjoy!!
This app will also allow you to scan a food item’s bar code to get the nutrition facts and ingredients list. The app will then tell you why or why not the product doesn’t fit you preset criteria.
