RDN Score
4 out of 5


  • Pleasant visual design that’s upbeat and easy to navigate.
  • Choose interests and personalize the experience by selecting from 9 different categories that include kids, healthy, fit, hearty, tasty, fertile, lite, sugar and buzz (which shares new products, hot topics, food trends and research).
  • Home feed is tailored to share content from the dietitians the user follows.
  • Option to participate as an expert RD (and build a following) or as a general member of the Honey community.
  • Members can find and follow registered dietitians based on specific areas of interest.
  • Browse the “buzz” to read current food and nutrition news and get tips from Honey.
  • Get the bite of the day via push notifications for a quick nutrition tip, recommendation or product update.
  • Members can leave nutrition questions in the “Honey Pot” for a registered dietitian to respond or for the question to be featured in future content.
  • Easily recall your favorite content by saving to your “Hive.”
  • Created by registered dietitian nutritionists.


  • Available via Apple only.
  • Requires signing up – surrendering name, date of birth, gender and email address or sign up with Facebook profile. Some people may see this as a privacy concern.
  • It’s not clear if the information is vetted by a panel of experts before it’s posted.
  • Though it is growing and becoming more active, the community is small at present.

Bottom Line
In the crowded, often questionable food and nutrition world, Honey is a welcome resource to share information from registered dietitian nutritionists in one place.
