About Us:


FoodFocus
FoodFocus was founded in 1993 with the encouragement of an educator with a vision that her students would have access to nutrition analysis software which had much of the power of professional programs but was easy-to-use and designed for an educational environment.


Our Mission
We strive to provide software to help educators deliver Health Canada's messages on eating well and on active healthy living. Our goal is to make both FoodFocus and FitFocus the best choice for students and teachers considering Canadian content, curriculum conformance, ease-of-use, different levels of user abilities and interests, educational efficiency, cost and enjoyment.

We also aim to support users outside the Canadian educational realm who find FoodFocus to be a useful tool (such as those in public health).

We aim to provide teachers with the tools to use FoodFocus (with lesson plans, interactive training and workshops).

We strive to provide teachers with economical upgrades as food data and nutrient recommendations change so as to protect their investment in software, training and and teaching materials.




FoodFocus History
A (somewhat clunky by today's standards) version of FoodFocus was introducted in 1993. New versions have been issued every few years as user interfaces advanced and Health Canada updated food data and nutrient recommendations. In 2006, a complementary program to help students compare their activities to Health Canada's Active Healthy Living guidelines, FitFocus, was introduced. In 2009, we added a version of FoodFocus customized with food data and recommendations from New Zealand (FoodFocus NZ).
