How does Foodsmart work?
Meet your personal nutrition coach. Schedule a phone call or video visit.
Browse our network of Chicago dietitians to find a nutrition coach you connect with. When you're ready to book, select who you'd like to meet with. During your first visit, make sure to ask your nutrition coach about the available nutrition programs that can help you reach your goals. They'll also help you set up the Foodsmart app for day-to-day support.
Customize your plan with delicious meals to meet your goals.
Work with your nutrition coach to plan your meals from thousands of chef-inspired recipes. Sort by your dietary preferences, budget, and ingredients you already have on hand with our Cookitnow feature.
Order food for delivery or pickup.
Save an average of $42 per week on groceries through local grocery deals in Chicago, coupons, and food delivery tools. Order groceries for pickup or delivery directly in the app from Walmart, Amazon Fresh, or Instacart. Look out for the "avocado" icon to indicate healthy options.
