With summer in full swing, everyone wants to look good in their swimsuit when they hit the beach or swimming pool. Here are a few free Android Market apps that can help.

Looking for healthier food alternatives while grocery shopping or wondering if that granola bar you’re about to eat is really as healthy as it appears? 

Fooducate Nutrition Scanner

Simply scan the product’s barcode and this app gives a grade from A to F to let you know how smart your food choice really is. It lists key nutritional information, such as displaying how many calories per serving, sugar per serving, lets you know if the food contains trans-fat or is made with refined flours, etc. This is an easier alternative than trying to decode nutrition fact labels and ingredient lists on food packages. 

You can even click on a tab within the app and you can see healthier food alternatives!
