German supermarket giant Aldi is hoping to make shopping for groceries easier for everyone with its new free app, Healthy Picks.
The Healthy Picks app was launched on February 3, and it makes it easier for shoppers to understand food labels, so they can pick the healthiest foods for their family.
The app was developed in conjunction with The George Institute for Global Health and it allows shoppers to scan any pre-packaged item in the store and get an instant health rating in the form of a health star rating or traffic light rating.

The aim of the Healthy Picks app by Aldi is to make nutritional information easier for customers to understand, and reduce the time they spend shopping by reducing how long they have to analyse food labels for. The app can quickly tell you if those ‘vege chips’ are actually healthy, or if they’re loaded with salt and fats.
