Why can't you edit a single item in a list in "My meals"

Hey thanks for posting your question. Sorry for any inconvenience with editing your meals. Currently you would need to edit the single item in the database and then edit the meal via adding it to your diary. We will definitely consider adding more editing options for future updates.

To edit a meal, first add it to your diary. Then, in that diary entry, make any changes to the meal that you’d like – for example, changing a portion size, and deleting or adding food items. Finally, follow the steps for remembering a meal, but select the “Replace an Existing Meal” option. Choose the meal name you wish to overwrite, and that meal will be replaced with the meal you just edited.

Regards,
Logan

Please consider this. When I first created meals I may change my preferences over time. Rather than have to create a new entry, I would like to edit an existing meal.

Yes, not being able to edit the quantity of an individual food in a meal is very inconvenient.
