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