Fooducate – Health Scan

27 Sep

There are lots of apps that allow you to scan barcodes to compare prices of different products. Fooducate takes this to a new level!

When you scan the barcode of a processed food item, Fooducate connects you to information on “How Healthy” that product is – even assigning it a letter grade.

Students can use this app on a supermarket field trip or to scan items you bring into your classroom.  The Fooducate website also performs the same function. If you’re teaching a unit on healthy eating, or discussing advertising during a persuasive writing unit, Fooducate can integrate technology into your lesson.

Check out my lesson plan using Fooducate in the classroom!

This app is also available on Android devices.
