We all want to eat healthily, but with so much to consider - from the various different types of fat to salt and sugar levels - homing in on the right sort of food can be a real chore. This is where ShopWell can help, enabling you to more easily decipher the nutritional information of thousands of products.

The app can be used in a variety of ways. You can perform a manual search through the food database to find out more about individual food types, or you can perform a search to track down foods that meet certain criteria - such as low sodium or high fibre.

The app can be used in stores as well. Just use your camera to scan the barcode and you can check items as you shop. When used in this way, ShopWell provides a quick and easy way to compare the same type of food from different companies.

The fact that ShopWell can be customised so that the foods you need in your diet are highlighted as being good for you - and this may not be the same for everyone, after all - means that the information you are provided with is tailored to your exact requirements.

Verdict

A great tool for anyone on a diet, or anyone who wants to learn more about the food they put into their body.
