Hello,

Can anyone tell me how I enter a food that isn't listed when you do a search for a food item? I know all the nutritional values but don't know how to enter it so it shows up in my food diary.

Thanks for any help Very Happy

Enter your food, chicken or whatever, then select next to food entered! the ''add selected' on bottom left and follow questions

If you search for a food that isn't in the database, an "Add New Food" option will appear at the bottom left of the listings box. Click on that and it'll let you put in the details of the new item.

You can also edit the details after you've saved the food item, by going to the summary box that appears on the left of the screen, when you go to enter it in your food diary.
