“Foodstand is an accessible and exciting resource that allows its users to take back their health by introducing them to real food and helping them to set measurable goals. Filled with recipes, challenges, and guidebooks, Foodstand creates a space for people to become active participants in their wellness journeys.”
Lauren Nixon, Food Educator
“Behaviors are best shaped through reward—that’s been confirmed by both research and practice—yet most healthy eating apps ask you to engage in monotonous calorie logging that essentially turns food tracking into a chore. We designed Foodstand with that problem in mind, combining behavioral science and game mechanics to create a fun and playful experience that rewards users for tracking their eating habits while encouraging healthy choices in an ecosystem of tremendous social support.”
Dr. Andrew Miller
“Foodstand is a powerful tool for anyone seeking to make some changes to their relationship with food and eating. Capitalizing on the science of learning and behavior change, and setting this within a supportive and engaging community setting, Foodstand maximizes the chances of making healthy changes to eating behavior. Foodstand makes it easier to do the right thing when it comes to eating.”
Brian Iacoviello, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatry at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
The Foodstand app is unparrelleled to other apps because it focuses on behavior change. In a culture obsessed with dieting and numbers, it’s refreshing to see an app focused on behavior change fostered by support and community. Healthy living goes far beyond calories and the number on the scale, seeing an app focused on that is encouraging for both consumers and health professionals.

“Foodstand, an organizational member of the True Health Initiative, is beautifully aligned with the science, sense, and consensus based fundamentals of healthy, sustainable eating. They are doing a beautiful job of making a healthful diet more accessible to people in the real world by leveraging another important principle in common with the THI: our greatest strength is a product of our unity, and working together. The THI is very proud to stand with Foodstand…”

As a mom of three I am constantly on the go. With Foodstand’s daily reminders I was more conscious of both myself and my children’s drink options. I am happy to say my family’s go to drink is now water. We are on our way to a healthier lifestyle.
I just wanted to say I absolutely love Foodstand, I fell in love with the environment once i first downloaded the app, and it’s what keeps me coming back for more! There’s so many options for the challenges, there’s so much encouragement from others on the app, and when I had a question I got a response from a real person in a decent amount of time. I stopped using the app for a bit, and I just decided to see what I’d missed while I wasn’t on it, and I know I won’t be off the app for a long time. Thanks for the amazing app!

“Before I joined my goals were about losing weight but after I started to lose the weight I wanted I had created these unhealthy habits of measuring my food, restricting my calorie intake and worrying too much about what I can and cannot eat. After I joined Foodstand, I’ve learned to enjoy my food without being so restrictive and too listen to my body by eating when I’m hungry and not eating when I’m not.”
