My Food-a-pedia from USDA

Stay healthy this summer with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s My Food-a-Pedia mobile website.

The USDA developed this great tool to help people find information on the foods they’re eating. Using this tool, users are able to look up nutritional information on over 1,000 foods, and compare them to one another to make healthy decisions. This mobile site can be reached from any mobile platform. Here’s more from the USDA:

At a time when many Americans aren’t getting enough of each food group and are challenged with achieving a healthy weight, MyFood-A-Pedia is a mobile tool to provide consumers quick access to nutrition information for over 1,000 foods. MyFood-a-pedia includes: calorie amounts, contribution of a food to the five food groups, and number of “extra” calories in a fod from solid fats, added sugars, and alcohol.
