Nutripledge

Our Food Coach rates you food based on its nutrition data provided by you. Your food will be rated into 1 of 4 categories. Green Dot (health promoting), Yellow Dot (healthy balance), Green/Yellow Dot (meal replacer) or Red Dot (watch out) to help you navigate the nutrition facts label in order to make healthy food choices. We will be rating a food every Friday and discussing its nutritional quality and how it may impact your health and wellness.
