What is Foodsmart?

At Foodsmart, we work directly with your members to improve health outcomes and provide accessible, educational and affordable solutions to eating well. 

Members will work one on one with a registered dietitian to assess their needs and build a personalized meal plan to help them reach their goals. We'll consider chronic conditions, allergies, preferences, and household size and income to create the perfect meal plan for every member.

The meal plans can then be purchased and delivered right from the app with partners like Walmart+ or Instacart to help members save time and money.
