My new favorite app to help with healthy eating is Fooducate. It is a great way to see if the foods you are buying at the store really "meet the grade" when it comes to healthy eating. With this app, you can scan the bar code on the foods you want to buy. The app then gives the food a "grade". Just like the grades you received in school an "A+" is the best.
