By Allison Mars, Dietetics Student, Sargent College

This week on Best of the Food Apps we discuss “Good Food Near You an app that lets you find healthy food down the street.

goodfoodnearyouUpon opening Good Food Near You, you can select to have the app find your location via GPS or you can enter in a location manually, which can be useful if traveling. After it completes the search, the results are not all that impressive. It lists many chain restaurant and fast food locations. You may be asking: Why would I download this app if I want to find restaurants with healthy food? Although Good Food Near You’s database needs updating with some healthier restaurants, it does provide suggestions for healthy options at the restaurants it does list. It allows you to search by lowest fat, calories or carbs. While using Good Food Near You you may not find a new spot to pick up some healthy treats, you will be able to choose a better option if you’re in a bind and forced to grab some fast food on the go.
