Nowadays, it seems like there is an app for everything. Among the plethora of food apps in the market, we've stumbled upon a new one that promises to combine healthy eating with big flavor.

FoodSmart is a free iOS and Android app designed to work like Yelp. It blends nutrition advice with consumer reviews from ''scientific-based social networks'' to help you decide whether a food is healthy and tasty, according to Mashable.

To use it, you simply scan the barcode of the item you wish to purchase. Almost instantly, you'll get the lowdown on the nutrition content of the item and ideas for food pairings. Food items are rated on a scale of zero to 100 (least healthy to healthiest) so you can have a better idea of what you are getting.

So far, FoodSmart has data on 20,000 items but more are expected to be added. Co-founder Michael Segal told Mashable he hopes the app will expand to cover restaurant reviews and eventually be tailored to suit personal food choices.

Do you think this app would help you eat heathier?
