Insight into your clients' eating

No more guesstimates. With food group and other rich analyses, get real insight into your clients’ dietary patterns.

With FoodWorks you can quantify the food groups in dietary intakes and meal plans. See serves of basic food groups and drill down into detailed subgroups. Recipes (e.g. lasagne) and ‘discretionary’ foods  (e.g. donuts) are broken into their constituent parts and allocated accordingly.

Alternatively, for a nutrient perspective, investigate intake of micro and macro nutrients, and use the Nutrient Reference Values (NRVs) to assess adequacy.

Or combine a ‘nutrient’ and a ‘food groups’ approach. If you like, set customised goals for nutrients and food groups you want to focus on.


A compelling framework for our recommendations

With each client, we first assess their diet either by entering it into FoodWorks as a food frequency, or even better, importing their diary from Easy Diet Diary. The dietitian then has a solid overview of the energy balance and nutritional adequacy of their client’s intake. With the data in front of them, the discussion with the client becomes less ‘emotional’ and more ‘objective’.

For example, for clients trying to lose weight, our dietitians can immediately show the foods contributing excessive calories; or for clients with a nutritional deficiency, they can explore targeting foods rich in that nutrient and show the difference that makes. We then use FoodWorks to create sample ideal days to empower our clients to make change.

FoodWorks adds real value to our nutrition consulting by giving us a compelling and objective framework to justify our nutritional recommendations.

I am recommending Easy Diet Diary to all my patients

I am recommending Easy Diet Diary to all my patients for their food diaries and they seem to love it. And it is great to be using an Australian foods database and the same data as my patients and not trying to compare apples and oranges!

Dealing with food intolerances?

Salicylates, amines and glutamate

Chemicals involved in food intolerance are found in many different foods. The naturally occurring substances most likely to trigger reactions for sensitive individuals are salicylates, amines and glutamate (SAG).

In FoodWorks Professional, see the SAG content for generic foods as well as for thousands of common brand name products.
