How do I log a food that I can't find in the database?

When a food is not in the database, you can create your own. You just need to know its energy (kJ or Cal) per serve.

To create a food and log it in your diary:

  1. In the Diary screen, tap a meal, e.g. Breakfast, to open the meal to which you want to add the food.
  2. At the bottom of the screen, tap the plus (+).
  3. Tap My Foods.
  4. Tap the plus (+) at the bottom of the list.
  5. Type the food details. NOTE: Only Name, Serving Size and Energy are mandatory.
  6. At the top of the screen, tap Add.
  7. When asked 'Add <food> to diary now?' tap OK.
  8. To enter the quantity, tap the amount box and type a number and then tap a measure (e.g. g).
  9. At the top of the screen, tap Add.
  10. To return to your diary, at the top of the screen, tap the meal name.

NOTES:

  • To use this food again in your diary, open the meal to which you want to add it, tap the plus (+), and tap the My Foods tab. It will be listed there in alphabetical order.
  • If you want to edit the food, access the food by tapping the More button (...) in the tab bar at the bottom of the diary, then tapping My Foods, and tapping the food name.
