Better Health Food Scanner App Campaign

Nationwide campaign launches to help improve children’s health with a few simple swaps

A new campaign from Department of Health and Social Care’s Office for Health
Improvement and Disparities (OHID) has launched, heroing the NHS Food Scanner App as
part of its first ‘Better Health’ children’s nutrition campaign. The App is the ideal health hack
for families, helping them to swap food and drink that are higher in sugar, saturated fat and
salt to healthier alternatives.

With a simple scan of the barcodes, families can see how much sugar, saturated fat and salt
is in everyday food and drinks. The App suggests healthier swaps, by encouraging users to
choose “Good Choice” products – there are thousands of Good Choice food and drink
products you can swap to.

The NHS Food Scanner App provides parents with an easy hack to improve their children’s
health in 2022.

Download the free App today from the App Store or Google Play or search ‘Better Health
Healthier Families’.
