I created a nutrition app to track vitamins and minerals instead of the usual calories and protein/carbs/fat that most current nutrition apps focus on. My thinking was that little people actually "forget" to eat enough calories or such, but lacking a certain mineral/vitamin is a real health concern, especially for people with less varied diets. People can go weeks without some nutrient and not even realize the symptoms when they start appearing, usually finding out through some unconventional way like going to donate blood and having them tell you you're low on iron. This app isn't meant to track exact amounts, but rather estimates your general intake of these nutrients -- as such, you only input the healthy parts of your meal.
Definitely feel free to ask any questions or leave feedback in the comments, thanks!
