Snackability is a mobile application is a collaboration between the Department of Dietetics and Nutrition and the VIP program at FIU. This app was born after a study conducted by Dr. Cristina Palacios and her team throwing alarming results regarding the diet of adolescent and college student and the growing amount of unhealthy snacks popularized among them. Currently, there is a guideline for healthy snacking published by the USDA; however, these are often lost in translation when youth are faced with the decision to choose a snack. This app app would provide a simple guide informing how healthy the snack is by assigning a score based on how compliant it is to the USDA guideline for healthy snacks
