Traffic Light Food Tracker App

Sort the fat from the fiction

Introducing the Traffic Light
Food Tracker app

Ever been caught out by claims like 'fat-free' or 'high in protein' only to discover you've been duped into buying something full of sugar?

The Traffic Light Food Tracker demonstrates how traffic light labelling can help you cut through marketing hype and make healthier choices. The app gives a traffic light rating based on the amount of total fat, saturated fat, sugars and sodium per 100g - green for low, amber for medium and red for high.

How does it work?

Choose a food product and find the nutrition information panel on the back or side of the pack.

Look for the 'per 100g' column. Enter the amount of total fat, saturated fat, sugars and sodium and get a traffic light rating for each nutrient.

The idea is to limit the number of red lights in your shopping trolley and replace with products with green lights....

Calculate traffic light rating of your chosen food.
