You can also filter the recipes by meal, calories, family-friendliness and many more filters.
This feature will help you track the calories of the food you’re eating. The barcode scanner will allow you to quickly scan any grocery item and find out the number of calories per serve of that item.

How does it work?
Make sure you have the most up-to-date version of The Healthy Mummy app, if you aren’t sure just go to the app store on your phone and check if any updates are available.
Once you know you have the most up-to-date version of the app go to the home screen then tap “My Target Calories” then use the “Calorie Lookup” feature which is where you will get access to the barcode scanner.
Find a barcode on a product, hold your phone over the barcode to scan and record the calories. The calories for the product will be loaded into the app and you can edit your serving size, its just that easy!
Meal Plan with week view
We love meal planning at The Healthy Mummy as we have heard from real mums how it has helped them not only save time, eat better but also save money. Well we just made meal planing easier in The Healthy Mummy app with week view!
You can now switch between your meal plan for the day or the week to see what you have planned for the whole week in one spot.
How does it work?
Go to your meal plan and you will see an icon on the right hand side of the screen, it looks like four little boxes. Tap this icon to see all of your meals for the week in one screen, its that simple!

Sort recipes by calories
Now that you can easily find the calories of your groceries through our barcode scanner we thought we would also help you by adding a new way to sort our recipes. To help you find recipes when you need to reach your daily calories you can now sort your search results from highest to lowest calories or lowest to highest.
How does it work?
To access this awesome new feature all you need to do is go to the recipe hub in the app to see NEW sort options: ‘High cals’ and ‘Low cals’, select either of these to sort and hit apply. The list of recipes will now be sorted per your selection.
Sorting recipes by calories allows you to quickly find a recipe with the right number of calories that you need.
