Why did the American Diabetes Association create My Food Advisor?

The American Diabetes Association knows that understanding information about calories, carbohydrates, fat, sodium and other nutrients can be overwhelming — especially for people with diabetes. Realizing that there is a gap in free, consumer-friendly online tools to help people really understand more about nutrition and food choices, our experts worked to develop a comprehensive and user-friendly tool. MyFoodAdvisor provides people with an easy way to look up a food and say, "Wow, this has 30 grams of carb and 5 grams of fat." But how does it all work together? How can I make healthier choices? This is what is missing from other online tools and makes MyFoodAdvisor unique.
