New ‘Healthy Picks’ app by ALDI

ALDI and The George Institute has developed an app to ensure grocery shops are less complicated, and healthier.

‘Healthy Picks’ app allows users to scan the barcode of any ALDI product* while they shop. Once an item is scanned, it will display the nutrition information of the product and guide the user to understand the amount of energy, saturated fat, sugar and sodium.

“We have developed the Healthy Picks app for ALDI to support their shoppers to make more informed choices,” said Public Health Nutritionist at The George Institute, Clare Farrand.

“The app displays nutrition information for every packaged food and drink product as either a Health Star Rating or Traffic Light Label, to give simple, easy to understand information about the healthiness of each product.

“From there, the shoppers can decide if they want to buy it, or switch to an alternative.”

If the customer wishes to switch to an alternative product the app will recommend a product in the same or similar category which could be considered a healthier option, depending on the Health Star Rating.

The Healthy Picks app is available to download via the App Store if you’re an iPhone user, or Google Play for Android Smartphones.
