Interactive Training Demonstrations for FoodFocus:

The overall process of using FoodFocus for nutrition analysis usually involves dealing with the following questions:
  • 1. Who? - which can be as simple as the default setting of 1 adult female or detailed (enter age, sex, special needs and activity level)
  • 2. What Food?- with FoodFocus, you can find a food 3 ways (using the food group(by Type), name (by Search), or content (by Nutrient)
  • 3. How Much of the Food?- you describe quantity by weight, by serving or typical size or by volume
  • 4. How Do Foods Compare to Guidelines? - compare nutrients in selected foods with Daily Recommended Intakes
  • 5. Do You Want to Explore Options? - you may add/delete/sort foods, change quantities and so on to explore ways to better meet nutrition guidelines but still be enjoyable and affordable
  • 6. What Do You Want to Do with Your Results? - you may wish to record your analysis (print, use files), do further analysis outside FoodFocus (export data), or use FoodFocus differently (set preferences)
