How do I create and log remembered meals?

For foods that you regularly eat together, saving them as a Meal lets you easily add them to your diary as a group. For example, you can create a Meal called "Two eggs and cereal" consisting of two eggs a bowl of cereal, and milk. You can then add this as a group, instantly, instead of adding each item separately. You can also save a single item as a meal, if finding that item in your Meals list adds convenience.

To create a Meal, just log the items you'd like to combine to one section of your diary, then:

On the Web
  • Click "Quick Tools" then "Remember Meal"
  • Give the meal a name.
  • Click either the green "Save Meal" button to save as a new meal, or click the green "Or, Replace An Existing Meal" button to do as the name suggests. 
In our iOS apps (version 5.3 and later)  and our Android app (version 3.1 or later)
  • Tap the "Edit" or Pencil button
  • Tap the selection box next to each item you'd like to include in the remembered meal. You can select items from the same diary meal, or include items from multiple meals.
  • Tap the "Save Meal" button (fork and knife around a plus symbol)
  • Give the meal a name and tap "Save New" or tap "Save as.." to replace an existing meal (iOS apps, tap the check mark)
  • To quickly create a meal from all of the items logged in one diary category, tap the "More" button under that meal. 

When you are logging food in the future, you'll find your remembered meals in the "Meals" tab of the food search screen.
