SuperTracker is an impressive interactive from the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. It’s designed to help you track your diet and exercise.

Tons of research shows that’s key to help people become conscious of their diet. Fortunately, there are other tools on The Best Sites For Learning About Nutrition & Food Safety that do that. You can read an article in the Wall Street Journal that tells more about the site.

More Squash, Less Bacon: Calculating Your Real-Life Heart Risk is from NPR. I’m adding it to the same list.
