NHS Food Scanner App
NHS Food Scanner App

Encourage pupils to make healthier choices:

Research shows that nearly 28% of pupils in Reception are overweight or obese, rising to over 40% of pupils in Year 6.  The NHS Food Scanner app is a handy health hack to make it easier for families to find healthier food and drink options.

The new Scan, Swipe, Swap activities toolkit uses the excitement of the app to encourage young people to explore what’s in their food and make healthier choices.

Engaging AR technology brings food labels to life as your pupils scan their way to healthier swaps.
Look out for a class set of take-home leaflets being delivered with your school fruit and veg box to inspire pupils and their families to make healthier swaps at home. Want to send all pupils home with the leaflet? Simply order more here and you’ll also receive free classroom display assets and an Eatwell Plate poster.
