It’s not just about you…
Advisr has been built to help people, who might otherwise struggle.
Of course, our focus is on helping people make food choices that are right for them, for their needs, for their circumstances.
We are very aware that having a health restriction or problem can be a lonely place. Which is why we decided to develop this Communities platform.
The idea is simple: when users find food that is good for their condition – whether shopping or eating out – they are able to instantly share that discovery with others who might have a similar condition. And of course, as a business, you can benefit from these discoveries.
We’re trying to bring together lots of sources of great information for all our communities into one place, so that if a user wants to know what’s happening about food in their community, the FoodAdvisr community is the place to go.
It’s what community is all about; sharing and looking after each other.
This figure shocked us; 10 million. That’s the number of arthritis sufferers in the UK. 10 million! It’s known that diet can really affect the symptoms and prognosis. The vast majority of sufferers are older adults. Being part of a community and looking after each other is something that many of us get better at as we get older, so download FoodAdvisr, use it in shops and Eateries, and share stuff that you find is good for your condition. Please.
For parents of babies who want to share or discover what or where to eat for your very precious bundles of joy!
Nobody wants to talk about cancer. But knowing that you’re not on your own helps. Being able to get ideas and insights about food that may assist in controlling your condition – from people who are going through the same thing as you – could help even more.

There are over 850,000 dementia sufferers in the UK, and the number is increasing dramatically.

Diet is understood to play a key part in prevention and management of dementia. This is such a distressing condition for everyone associated with it, that being able to get ideas and experiences from others is really important.
This community is for both Type 1 and Type 2 sufferers. 1 in 16 people in the UK have diabetes – that’s around 4 million people. 90% have Type 2. Being able to enjoy a fuller life by knowing exactly what’s in the food your eating is critically important to diabetics. Discovering places, products and recipes that are right for you is hugely helped by sharing. This is for you.
If you’re trying to cater for the needs of your whole family, it really helps to share collective knowledge. After all, it’s what every parent does when they’re picking up their kids from school or chatting to each other to get new ideas and discoveries. Join in the chat to share and learn!
We all deserve a treat now and again. But if you’ve got dietary restrictions it can seem as though you’ve been excluded from enjoying some of the finer choices in life. That doesn’t need to be the case, so use FoodAdvisr to help, and let others know what are where you found that allowed you to be spoiled but still keep healthy.
There are loads of us who are committed to getting fitter, and need to support our fitness activities with an appropriate diet. We know that there is a temptation to be competitive, and keep your food discoveries secret, but why not give and get some help and handy tips. It’s all about being in the team!
14 food allergen groups. 2% of the adult population (around 1 million people) have a food allergy. 8% of children (also around 1 million) have a food allergy. That’s scary. Get your food choices wrong and the consequences are immediate and can be very serious. This community will help to identify risky foods and places to eat, as well as great foods and places to eat that you may never have discovered on your own.
There are over 2.6 million chronic heart disease sufferers in the UK. We know that lifestyle and diet have a huge impact on the likelihood of getting heart disease, and the management of those that have it. Sharing your food discoveries may really help millions of other sufferers to enjoy more choices. Have a heart and share.
Ok – so we suspect that you already chat and share anyway. But why not let others know about what you’re finding out about your food through using FoodAdvisr. You may open doors for others in what they can eat – and indeed shouldn’t! – and where is welcoming and catering for the more mature and educated pallet.
Too many tantrums! Not enough sleep! Hyperactive and never getting a minute’s rest. Oh – and fussy about food!! It’s well documented that diet has a massive effect on the well-being and behaviour of kids. Certain ingredients really should be avoided. Others really should be included. You’d do anything for your kids, so why not take the time to check out more detail – really quickly – on the food they’re eating. Oh – and share it with other parents who are probably just as frazzled and at the end of their tether as you!
