I read about the Munch 5-a-Day app on Natural Papa yesterday, and checked the free iPhone and iPad app that helps eaters keep track of their fruit and vegetable intake for myself.

 

It’s quite a simple tool. It allows you to set a goal for fruit and vegetable intake (starting at five servings a day and working your way up 12 if you wish) and monitor your progress. As you meet with success in reaching your goals, the app gives you cute little reward badges. You can also share your progress with friends and family via Twitter and Facebook.

The app also has some guidelines to help users judge the correct portion of fruits and vegetables and suggests that a variety of fruits and vegetables be eaten every day. Munch 5-a-Day’s graphic are pleasant to look at, too.

Sure, this is a simple app that allows you to keep track of what you could keep track of in your head, but for some people accountability tools like this one are a motivator. If you think that you could be motivated to eat more healthy fruits and vegetables daily by using a tool like this, check it out. It’s free.
