I was so excited last week when a client emailed me and asked if I had seen EWG’s Food Scores Guide. It always makes me happy when my clients, friends and family are proactive about their nutrition and health :). This resource is a must-have for all you wellness warriors out there!
EWG’s Food Score database is your go-to guide for making cleaner, healthier food choices. It uses three food scoring factors:
One of the many things I love about this guide is they are very tough with their scores. As stated on their website, EWG’s product scores range from 1 (best) to 10 (worst). Only one food out of six earns Food Scores’ top rating. Here’s how the scores break down across the 80,000+ products:
Another awesome thing about this resource is you can get it right on your phone! EWG’s Food Scores app is available on iPhones and coming soon for Androids. You can type in a particular food or simply scan the bar code on the package and get a food’s score right while your shopping. How easy is that?!
Happy Healthy Shopping!
