NHS app to helps families eat healthily

The Guardian has reported that Public health minister Maggie Throup has announced that an updated NHS app will help families switch to healthier food as part of the Better Health campaign and to tackle high levels of childhood obesity. The NHS Food Scanner app will be able to scan product barcodes to bring up information about the food’s nutritional content – and will now suggest healthier alternatives. Ms Throup said: “The new year is a good time for making resolutions, not just for ourselves, but for our families. Finding ways to improve their health is one of the best resolutions any of us could make.”
