Healthy Eating

Scan, Swipe and Swap your way to better health!

At Ellen Wilkinson Primary School we have been learning about healthier habits using the ultimate healthy hack, the free Food Scanner app from Better Health.

We have been exploring what a balanced diet looks like and why it is important to know what is in our food and drink, and then making simple, healthier eating swaps using the free Food Scanner app. By simply scanning and swiping barcodes, the app shows how much saturated fat, salt and sugar is in everyday foods and drinks and gives suggestions for healthier alternatives. A fun augmented reality feature helps you celebrate your good choices.

By making a few easy swaps, you can make a real difference to your child’s health. Download the Food Scanner app on the Apple app store or Google Play store.
