The gold standard for research or clinical assessment of a child’s nutritional needs is a weighed food diary.
The burden and impracticality of weighing all food means that this is usually unsustainable for parents and in the vast majority of cases, this is taking the accuracy of the assessment of intake to a level that is beyond the needs of the child.
We have made it possible to use general household measures such as tablespoons and cupfuls and standard serving sizes to avoid the need for scales.
If you have brought something that is a single serving or pre-packaged, it will most likely have a barcode. The weight and nutritional information will auto-populate once you've used the scanning or the search function in the app.
Some parents might find it more reassuring to weigh their children’s food and this function is also supported.
