LIVE HEALTHY

Fooducate

LifeNet4Families is committed to helping our community get healthy. A grant from the Health Foundation of South Florida has helped us take important nutrition information into the community. Utilizing the latest in technology the "Fooducate" app and website provide families with their own personal nutritionist. The app gives food an A-D rating and helps families select foods that combat obesity and chronic diseases, more prevalent in low-income, minority populations. While shopping, the app scans and rates foods, giving best choice options and suggests food substitutes that are healthy. Fooducate's mobile application is to help families make better choices and provide helpful nutrition information they can share with the customers they serve.
