Good idea - really made us think! Im really enjoying this app, I have a small child and I'm keen to provide him with a healthy lifestyle whilst making changes to my own. It's amazing how much sugar is in some stuff, even if you know it's sugary, you dont tend to think about it. Such as a famous brand of glucose drink I had with my lunch, Im not stupid I know it's got loads of sugar in it, glucose is literally sugar. However I was shocked finding out there's 22 cubes of sugar in a small bottle. Sometimes I drink a big bottle in one day!
Brilliant but 1 point how much in milk I have just downloaded the app and it shows that the porridge I have doesn't have 1 sugar cube in per portion but my cereal has 2.3 in it and it shows me I should eat healthier and check how much sugar I have eaten per day. I thought I would see how much sugar in semi skimmed milk for a laugh but it said 1.2 per 100ml OMG.
It is an excellent app but the only reason I gave it four stars was because it doesn't have everything up to date. I tried scanning a milkybar and milkybar buttons and it says they don't know what they are. They have been around quite a few years now so I don't exactly understand it. Overall though the app is brilliant.
I am having a lot of trouble scanning the bar codes here, I only managed to scan at least two items but the others I want to scan is impossible. Then it said that it has no details on this item on that item and I'm starting to get wound up over it.
Very good. I'm using a Samsung Android phone and have no problems scanning barcodes. I must remember to do that before I buy something. I just ate some sweets that turned out to have 26 cubes of sugar. Absolutely shocking. But I won't buy them again. One star lost because many foods are not in the database. But otherwise very useful.
Good idea but poorly done. Only managed to scan one item so far, a tub of butter spread. Trying to scan a bar of chocolate is impossible thing half melted before I gave up.
