What It's All About

This is a social-type game you can play with your friends; if you want to do so, you’ll have to sign in with Facebook or create a login. If you don’t want to use the social aspect you can skip the login process.

The questions are all set in a Myth/Fact choice. Once you choose your answer, you’ll see the proper answer and the reason why. You also get a tip related to that question, such as how broccoli is a great snack at night. You’ll hear a happy chime if you get the answer correct, and a sad sound if you get it wrong. You’ll accrue points based on your right or wrong answers and how fast you were able to answer.

I’m a little peeved that some of the answers are wrong (like how salt is bad – didn’t the creators see the news that says salt’s one of those wrongly-demonized foods?).

If you don’t want to do the quiz but still want to learn about nutrition facts, you can go to the Categories section and choose a group to learn about.

Features

With the free version, you only get access to three categories out of the 11 available. I ran through the quiz twice, thinking I’d get a unique quiz the second time, but I had quite a few answers that were repeats from the first time through. Either that, or they were so similar (based on the information given in the facts portion of the answer) that they might as well have been the same.

The social aspect is fun: challenge your friends, family, and even co-workers to see who has the most nutrition knowledge! If nothing else, it’ll give you something interesting to do at break.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Fun way to find out how much you know about nutrition
  • An educational way to pass the time

 

Cons

  • You don’t get access to all the categories and features in the free version
  • Not all the nutritional “facts” are accurate
  • Repetitive 

 

Final Verdict

For what it is, a lite version of a paid game, this app is okay. I don’t like the fact that not all the information is accurate and the repetition is unnecessary. If that doesn’t bother you, then this could be a great and educational time killer. The in-app purchase to upgrade gets rid of the apps, allows you to compare your score to your friends’, gives you the rest of the categories, and unlocks the rest of the questions. It costs $1.99.
