Change4Life Sugar Smart

By Public Health England

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.

Description

Download the Sugar Smart app now to see how much total sugar is in your everyday food and drink. The Change4Life Sugar Smart app is designed to show quickly and easily how much total sugar is in the things you’re buying, eating and drinking, to help you spot it more easily so you can make healthier choices and cut your sugar intake.

Without us realising it, we’re all eating and drinking too much sugar:

• Children aged 4-6 years shouldn’t have more than 19 grams of added sugar per day – that’s 5 cubes*
• Children aged 7-10 years shouldn’t have more than 24 grams of added sugar per day – that’s 6 cubes*
• From 11 years and up, we shouldn’t have more than 30 grams of added sugar per day – that’s 7 cubes*

Let’s start scanning! Just scan the barcode and see how much total sugar it contains**

For hints and tips to cut down on sugar, search Sugar Smart.

*Based on 4 gram sugar cubes
**The number of sugar cubes shown is based on total sugar in grams per pack/100g or ml/portion divided by 4 grams (the weight of one 4 gram sugar cube). Images are a representation only.

Limited use

Bought five items from supermarket. Could not scan them in shop as no WIFI as is normally the case in most shops. So App has limited usage for that reason alone if you have to buy the product first before you find out. When I got home to WIFI only one of the five products were recognised. Again makes this app of very limited use unless it's database is extended rapidly and significantly. Finally for those seemingly few products in the database why not add more useful info than just number of sugar cubes. Why not calories, saturated fat etc. If they have examined the product to assess sugar cubes they will also have that more useful info as well. Will remain more of a gimmick than a useful shopping tool unless and until those significant draw backs are corrected.

Amazing, but

this app keeps you staying healthy and lets you be aware of the sugar content in your daily foods
i highly recommend, but....
this app does 'recognise' a lot of things, only popular(ish) brands
besides this i think this app is great if you want to know rough amount of sugar in your foods

Okay for the average person not so helpful for athletes!

So if you're the average person that buys the same supermarket food and branded, each week it's fine. If you already understand the basis of good nutrition and are wanting to check out the sugar content in protein bars etc, then forget it.
