The long-awaited PlateTracker is finally here. Quickly and easily track not only calories but also quantities of each food group so you can be sure you are getting a balanced diet on the go. See a list of what you eat each day along with quick-glance charts that compare actual consumption to your custom MyPlate food plan. It's easy to see, for instance, when you need to eat more vegetables and fewer empty calories.

There is so much more to healthy eating than just counting calories. Everyone knows that fruits and vegetables are much healthier than candies and sodas, yet calories alone do not capture that difference. MyPlate Tracker is about helping you achieve your goals of a healthier lifestyle by tracking what you eat, not just how much. Our methods are not backed by our own ideas, but by years of research that goes into the Dietary Guidelines for Americans published by the USDA.

This app gives users the ability to lookup their customize MyPlate food plan and provides basic information to help determine which foods belong to which group and equivalency tables. Users can enter their age, gender and physical activity level to quickly see the recommendations of Americas top nutritionists. The Daily Food Plan allows you to see how much of each food group you should be eating each day for a healthy, balanced diet.

The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, form the basis of the federal government’s nutrition education programs, federal nutrition assistance programs, and dietary advice provided by health and nutrition professionals. The Guidelines messages include:

Balance Calories
• Enjoy your food, but eat less.
• Avoid oversized portions.

Foods to Increase
• Make half your plate fruits and vegetables.
• Switch to fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk.
• Make at least half your grains whole grains

Foods to Reduce
• Compare sodium (salt) in foods like soup, bread, and frozen meals, and choose foods with lower numbers.
• Drink water instead of sugary drinks.

    I was so excited to find this app but so disappointed to see it falls far short of the online version which is the best tracker I've ever used but stopped using because it wasn't mobile. I'm looking for an update that includes a syncing feature with the online version, a total fluids tracker, integration with restaurant nutrition information, favorite meal/item saving and autofill options, etc.

    I just discovered this and rather like the simplicity of the app. I can estimate calories but it would be nice if they were included. I've been looking for something that tracks nutrition rather than just calories. It reminds me of what i liked about weight watchers back in the day vs the stupid point system that is so easy to cheat.

    The app doesn't have the same features as its web version supertracker. There is no login into my account which would've made everything easier to track by linking the app with the web account. It also doesn't have a food list data that would enable it to calculate the calories intake etc.

    When I input food it does not tell me calories. Also is there any way to sync it with online account?

    I love the idea of this app but it is not the most user friendly. For instance how many cups is a large banana? I have no idea! There are other apps out there that have this information in a database and they are searchable. Also most nutritional facts are listed in grams, maybe add a conversion from grams to ounces in you are after ounces or cups. Nice try but it needs some work.

    Didn't find any way to link online profile to app. No access to family tracking.
