This is the first tool of its kind from USDA that utilizes mobile technology to educate and empower consumers to make healthful food decisions!

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.
