Introduction to Nutrition Programs

Nutrition Program screen shotNutrition Programs are now supported in the MealLogger 4 app. Nutrition Programs combined with our new serving tracking feature give professionals a means to publish guidelines for their clients to follow. Want your clients to eat more non-starchy vegetables? Add it as a required food type and let your clients self-report their activity.

You’ll still have the benefit of being able to see what your clients eat but Nutrition Programs provide a way for your clients to monitor themselves. As a professional you’ll be free to give positive reinforcement and qualitative feedback; MealLogger 4 and MealLogger Pro will track and report on your clients’ intake.

Setting up a Nutrition Program

In the Coaching section of MealLogger Pro left menu pane, select Nutrition Programs

After clicking Create Program, give the program a name and brief description.  Note that you can either publish a program to all MealLogger users or restrict it to just your clients and social group connections. Publishing a program to all users can attract new users to your organization. (note: nutrition program users do not count toward any client/user limits in your plan).
