1 Minutes Read

The Vegan Society has launched an app to help vegans hit their nutritional targets daily.

VNutrition, which features ‘an easy-to-use checklist and personalized tips’, is aimed at new vegans, those trying out veganism or those who want to assess the quality of a well-established vegan diet.

It was developed by the charity’s in-house Dietitian Heather, who specializes in vegan nutrition, and is the only registered dietitian employed by a vegan organization in the UK.

Accessible

Heather Russell, Dietitian at The Vegan Society, said: “The Vegan Society is striving to provide high quality and accessible information about nutrition, and I’m delighted to have been involved in developing VNutrition.

“Our alliance with the British Dietetic Association shows just how committed we are to providing reliable education about vegan nutrition and sharing the message that well-planned vegan diets can support healthy living in people of all ages.

“The app is based on UK guidelines about healthy eating and the best available evidence around vegan nutrition, and we hope it will help a large number of vegans and the vegan-curious.”

App

According to The Vegan Society: “VNutrition, is the first vegan app created by a registered dietitian.

“It features handy hints and colorful illustrations that bring to life the basic principles of vegan nutrition, helping users to learn about portion sizes, getting their five-a-day, hitting their targets for protein, calcium and omega-3 fat, and ensuring appropriate supplementation.

“A simple checklist enables users to assess their nutritional intake, and a progress graph and personalized tips help them to identify areas for improvement.”
