Scans the barcodes of supermarket food; supplies nutritional information, and suggests healthier alternatives.
“This month, a smartphone app called ‘FoodSwitch’ is being launched by the University of Auckland’s National Institute for Health Innovation (NIHI). The free app lets you scan the barcodes of packaged foods using your smartphone’s camera. FoodSwitch then gives you colour-coded ‘traffic-light’ information about the food’s fat, saturated fat, sugar and salt content. You’ll be able to see at a glance whether a food has high (red), or medium-ish (orange), or low (green) amounts of total fat, saturated fat, sugar and salt. FoodSwitch will also give you a list of similar foods that are healthier choices, and it lets you share all this via social media. Professor Cliona Ni Mhurchu, who leads NIHI’s nutrition research programme, says people have been bewildered by confusing food labels for too long. “Research shows that people like traffic-light labels and can use them to make healthier choices. FoodSwitch is a tool that can help them do this”. FoodSwitch was originally developed in Australia by the George Institute for Global Health, and is being launched here with Bupa Care Services NZ. Auckland researchers have tailored it for New Zealand shoppers with over 8,000 packaged foods in the database. What’s more, shoppers can help increase this number; if you scan a barcode not in the database, you’re prompted to take three photos of the product’s package for researchers to add new products to the app.” Consumer, New Zealand | http://bit.ly/1qlvUGM

“Consensus Action on Salt and Health (CASH), along with other UK researchers, have launched a new free and impartial smartphone app that will allow you to scan in your favourite food-and-drink products, and see their nutritional values, plus healthier alternatives. The app provides ‘at a glance’ colour-coded nutrition information for over 80,000 products. Allows customers to switch to healthier products based on established nutrition criteria. Developed by leading health experts, and supported by 13 organisations, ‘FoodSwitch’ allows users to scan the barcode of over 80,000 packaged food and drinks sold across major UK supermarkets using their smartphone camera to receive immediate, easy to understand, ‘traffic-light’ colour-coded nutritional information, along with suggested similar, healthier products. It is now easier than ever for consumers to reduce high levels of fat, salt and sugar in their families’ diet. When the barcode of a food or drink product is scanned by a smartphone, ‘FoodSwitch’ instantly searches the database and identifies healthier products by comparing the overall nutritional value of the product to existing government criteria. The overall nutritional rating takes into account a range of different factors important to general health including fats, sugars, salt, protein and fibre. ‘FoodSwitch’ gives customers the perfect opportunity to get to grips with what the labels mean, and to better understand what is in their food. The app colour codes each product by the content of four important nutrients: total fat, saturated fat (saturates), sugars and salt. Red – (high) try to choose products with less red circles. Amber – (amber) this choice is OK, but going for choices labelled green is better. Green – (low) the more green circles, the healthier the choice.” Blood Pressure UK (Blood Pressure Association), UK | http://bit.ly/1jEWZQ5

“An estimated 60,000 people each year in the UK have an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, and, sadly, less than 10% will survive. Yet, if a bystander is able to start CPR, they could double a person’s chances of survival. The Resuscitation Council (UK) has combined forces with award-winning production company UNIT9 to develop ‘Lifesaver’—a revolutionary new way to learn CPR … Lifesaver is a live-action movie you play like a game. It just happens to show how to save someone’s life. It throws you into the heart of the action, changing what happens in movies, showing real people in real places. … You learn by doing: do it wrong, and see the consequences; do it right, and sense the thrill of saving a life. And it is free.” Resuscitation Council UK (RCUK), UK | Source no longer available
