Get the optimial nutrition during your pregnancy
Wholesome is a fantastic tool for tracking your nutrition while pregnant or while trying to conceive. Folic acid has been shown to reduce neural tube defects in infants, but it is even better to get this nutrient in it's natural state, folate, directly from whole foods. Using Wholesome, just set your profile to pregnant, and your goals will adjust allowing you to track toward the USDA recommended intake levels personalized to you.
For example, an adult female is recommended to have 400 mcg of folate per day, while a pregnant woman needs to get 600 mcg. Wholesome will set your goal to 600 mcg and all you have to do is track foods and recipes until you reach 100% for the day. Now there's no guesswork and you can ensure you are getting just the optimum nutrition from natural whole foods to promote a healthy pregnancy.
THE BEST TRACKER AVAILABLE
Micronutrients are critical for health and development. Wholesome Pro let’s you track foods or recipes and identifies nutrient gaps in your diet. You can set your own daily nutrition targets or simply rely on the USDA recommendations for your age and gender. The 7 day and 14 day view can help you see how you're trending over time. Wholesome also warns you when you’ve had too much sugar, fat, or sodium.
With 80+ nutrients, Wholesome has the most comprehensive nutrient database available for tracking, including macronutrients, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and multiple types of antioxidants and omega 3s. Wholesome Pro syncs with Health Kit and Apple health app.
TRACK 40 ANTIOXIDANTS
We spent hundreds of hours manually collecting scientifically-sourced data for 40 antioxidants including: beta-Carotene, alpha-Carotene, Brta-Cryptoxanthin, Lycopene, Lutein, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Manganese, Selenium, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Curcumin. You won't find this anywhere else! Wholesome not only tracks these nutrients but also explains why they are important to your health.
ONE-CLICK RECIPE TRACKING
With just one-click you can track an entire recipe using Wholesome Pro. You can track any recipe in the app including: your own recipes, your friends’ recipes, or recipes from the community.
PERSONALIZED NUTRIENT GOALS
Did you know that women are recommended to have twice as much iron as men and pregnant women need three times as much? Just set your profile and the app will take all of these factors into account and set your goals according to the USDA guidelines. Want to get extra protein or set your sodium goal lower? You can customize your own nutrient targets within settings.
FIND OUT WHAT TO EAT NEXT
Wholesome Pro not only calculates your daily nutrition, it also suggests foods to eat to fill any nutrition gaps. For example, if you didn’t get enough iron and protein for breakfast or lunch, it will find foods rich in both for dinner. With Wholesome Pro you can optimize your diet and get the most out of what you eat.
In the 'tips' section of any food page you can learn how to select and prepare whole foods for the most nutrition. For example, did you know it's best to chop garlic and let it sit for 5 minutes so that enzymes can get activated that bring out the most nutrition? The tips section also includes information on whether or not to buy organic and pesticide risk.
Simply set your profile as vegetarian and the app will remove the appropriate animal products.
TRACK FOR YOUR CHILD
Wholesome supports ages 1 and older but at this time only allows you to track one profile per device. If you do decide to track for your child, it is important to change your profile settings so that the recommended goals are set appropriately.
20,000 FOODS AND GROWING
Wholesome's database started with 500 whole foods and has grown to over 20,000 in just a few months. Hundreds of foods are being added daily. You can find all of these foods within search.

(note that this feature is on premium only, which is absolutely the BEST few bucks i ever spent on the app store)" -Eliot CC
"I wanted an app that wasn't for dieting but simply telling me if I was getting enough protein and vitamins. This app is exactly that."- Mobejo
"It sure does make you conscious of what you eat, as a food diary would, but no nagging about diet, lose weight, etc, which is a problem with other apps. As with most Americans, I'm usually too high in sodium, sometimes protein which was a surprise, not enough fruit, vegetables. The benefits convince you how great they are for you, so it motivates you to try to eat more of the good things!" - Jetta375
