Foodback empowers you to create healthier food places in your community, by allowing you to review the healthiness of foods advertised and sold in food places in your community. This includes foods sold at schools, medical centres, hospitals, supermarkets, fast food and takeaway outlets, sport and recreation centres and events.
You can share healthy food initiatives on Foodback and stay up to date with the latest stories on healthy food places in New Zealand. You can also look which food places in your community earned “badges” (e.g. sugary drink free) and “medals” (e.g. bronze, silver, gold) for their efforts to improve the healthiness of the foods they offer and advertise.
The data collected with the Foodback app will be used by researchers at the University of Auckland to understand the healthiness of New Zealand’s food landscape and to help encourage and support local and national change agents to make positive, healthy changes to foods advertised and sold in New Zealand.
