Children in England are having around 2,800 sugar cubes more than they should each year, more than double the maximum recommended amount. Too much sugar is bad for children’s health and can cause tooth decay, heart disease and some cancers.
For those people that never used the Be Food Smart app, it works by scanning bar codes of food and drink. Once an item has been scanned the app tells you how much sugar, salt, and saturated fat is in the food you have scanned. It also includes some addiiotnal exciting features.
- Calorie information – the app tells you the amount of calories in food and drink products, and will also provide calorie information per serving suggestion.
- Improved results layout – you will find it much easier to understand what’s in your food after scanning.
- Constantly improved product data – Chnage4Life are constantly looking to improve the number of products that users are able to scan.
