Best iPhone and iPad Apps for Healthy Eating

#2. Fooducate

Fooducate iPhone and iPad App IconWith Fooducate, you can scan the barcode of a product or type in its name and find out its total calories, sodium, fat and everything else it consists of.

#3. True Food

True Food iPhone and iPad App IconTrue Food helps you avoid products that are genetically modified. The app lists “green” foods (that don’t contain modified ingredients) and “red” foods (which do).
