My Nutrition, a new app released by Codekia, might be just the ticket for helping users solve the puzzle of healthy eating, and best of all, it’s free.

The app’s comprehensive list of vitamins and nutrients for over 8,000 foods comes directly from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Users can search the database for the contents of their refrigerator to determine what nutrients they are consuming or pull up specific vitamins and minerals to find the best ways to consume more of them.

The My Diary feature of the app makes it easy to keep track of what has been consumed throughout the day and calculates the total values of nutrients consumed to help users achieve their dietary goals.

Favorite foods, or foods that are undesirable, can be stored in the My Foods feature for easy access to their information. The app can also remember favorite recipes, facilitating easy replication of meals that are delicious and nutritious.

But this app isn’t just for the health conscious individual. The My Family feature makes it easy to manage family-approved recipes and keep track of Recommended Daily Intakes for multiple members, apparently supporting the brand’s claim that My Nutrition is the most inclusive nutrition app yet.
