To enter the nutrition facts for a restaurant (or any other category) we basically need to have a minimum of the following nutrients:
  • calories
  • total fat
  • saturated fat
  • cholesterol
  • sodium
  • total carbohydrate
  • fiber
  • sugar
  • protein
  • (and hopefully vitamin A, C, calcium and iron).

If you choose to request a restaurant, please note that you will need to enter ALL foods listed on their menu.  Please e-mail nutrition@foodpicker.org which restaurants you wish to work on.  You can also request a restaurant that is not on the below list and is not already appearing on the Restaurant link.

FOODPICKER® is a program designed to help people with diabetes make better food choices.  Our hope is that people consider the foods they consume and how they can burn them off with exercise for good health.  We embrace the guidelines put forth by the American Diabetes Association as well as the American Dietetic & American Heart Associations.  This website is completely free and brought to you by volunteers in the health care field.
