Food Delivery App Adds Healthy Button to Help Avoid Cheeseburgers

One delivery app, Eat24, uses algorithms to determine what menu items are healthy enough to eat without breaking any of those vaunted New Year's resolutions.

The last couple of years have seen the rise of the insanely convenient food delivery app. The only downside? Delivery food is not, on average, good for you. Most of it is downright unhealthy. One delivery app, Eat24, is trying to change that with the addition of a 'healthy button.'

The company recently unveiled an aggregate system that uses a series of algorithms to determine what menu items are healthy enough to eat without breaking any of those vaunted New Year's resolutions. It's not the kind of thing that will just jut out obvious options like turkey burgers. The algorithms were designed by nutritionists so you can expect actually healthy instead of fake healthy.

This healthful button has already launched nationwide, so if you use Eat24 on the regular, and you want to cut down on the chimichangas, try it out.
