FoodSwitch

Download FoodSwitch and use it to see what’s in your shopping basket, to make better food choices when shopping for you and your family.

Using the camera on your smart phone, FoodSwitch allows you to scan the barcodes of packaged foods at the supermarket, your desk or at home. It then presents you with immediate, easy-to-understand information about that product's nutritional make-up.

Using a traffic light colour-coded system (red, amber and green), it's easy to see whether a food is less healthy, okay or a healthier option based on its total fat, saturated fat, sugar and salt content. You can also see a list of similar foods that are healthier choices, from our database of over 90,000 products.
