As well as the barcode scanner, have you discovered these 3 easy ways to add food to your diary?

1 Fast Track featuring 'Multi-Add'

Fast Track

Tap the + symbol next to a meal occasion to see the foods you've added most frequently.

To add several foods in one go, tap 'Multi-Add' (top left), make your selection – then tap 'Add' (top right).

2 Copy forward

Fast Track

If you tend to eat the same breakfast and snacks most days, this will save you time.

Once you've completed your diary, tap the food you want to add to tomorrow plus any other items, then tap 'COPY' in the bottom menu bar. Select tomorrow or set a date range.

3 Quick Add

Fast Track

This one is good if you're making a recipe that gives calories / nutrients per serving. You can add a portion to your diary without having to create the whole recipe in My Meals.

Open the App, tap the green menu button > Quick Add. Just enter your recipe name, kcals and grams of fat (or whichever nutrient you are tracking) and add to your diary.
