Over the years I’ve had some odd requests for things to be added to the nutritional database on the Nutrition Program.
Perhaps the person that wanted rat poison has a special diet in mind for someone this year?
Is it a harassed teacher that wants paracetamol included?
Some things we can’t find like dragon fruit.
But many foods are misspelled – bred, paystry, flower, soogar, sereal, toad in the whole – we try our best to keep things up to date.
And there are some rude words too – some in patois! Guess it’s what teenagers do when they are bored – I sometimes google the words just in case they are foods, and get some interesting definitions – one is a Jamaican bottom wiper!
We’ve added a spellcheck to the Nutrition Program so people can find food even though they don’t know how to spell it – just like Sainsburys.
