How do I edit or delete a food I created in "My Foods?"

You can edit any food you have personally added to your database, and you can delete personal foods, as well, provided you have not shared them with the public database. At this time it is not possible to delete any food you've elected to share on the main database, you can only edit those foods.

On the Web
  • Click on the "Food" tab, then click "My Foods." Search for the food you'd like to edit or delete, then click on that item in the search results. Finally, click on the "Edit" or "Delete" button to make modifications to your food.
In our iOS apps
  • In the Menu (or "More" page) tap "My Meals, Recipes & Foods" then "My Foods."
  • Tap the item you wish to edit, then tap "Edit Food"
  • Be sure to save your changes.
In our Android app
  • In the Menu tap "Recipes Meals & Foods" then "Foods."
  • Tap the food and make changes on the next screen.
  • Be sure to save your changes.

To delete a personal food from that list:
  • iPad and iPhone users: swipe the item from right to left, then tap "Delete"
  • Android users: Tap the three dots on the top right, then "Edit" icon, place a check next to the items, then tap the "Delete" (trash can) icon
