Nutrition check on the go

Foodnavi helps users achieve a wholesome nutrition, whether they follow a mixed or a vegetarian diet. It is now also available for specialized diets catering to the needs of diabetics, coeliacs and cardiovascular prevention.

After entering the personal profile  including gender, age, body weight and physical activity level, the program calculates an optimal ratio between the different food groups – represented in a nutrition circle.

Based on the recorded food intake of a full week the app displays on a color bar whether or not the intake is optimal or if there is a need for improvement.

The optimum is based on the UGB’s Healthy-Eating-Index (HEI-UGB). This index differs from other scoring systems as it calculates the optimal intake amounts from the different food groups instead of being based on single nutrients.

Every food group is accompanied by info material and notes about its climate impact, as well as information about the specific diets.

Foodnavi has been developed for iOS in cooperation with nutritionists and dieticians, as well as with competent institutions.

The basic version is available in the app store for $1.99. The specialized versions Food Navi coeliac, Food Navi cardio, and Food Navi diabetes II are available for $2.99.
