This site was very easy to follow. I actually used it myself to find my daily
caloric intake and have bookmarked it for future use. This site will be used in
my classroom as interactive material.
Another nice feature of this site is the online diet tracker - it is actually a
link to a diet service that one can join for a minimal fee. It seemed so good
that I am actually going to join.
The site has a massive list of popular foods as well as fast foods and
nutritional value.

Technical Remarks:

I liked the way the initial page was set up. Instead of linking to each site
from the 'popular features', there is a caption containing the contents of the
link. From there, you would actually link to a further site. There is not an
abundance of information on each page which is nice. It is very condensed.
There is no guessing about what is a link and what is not. All links are blue
and other text is black. Instead of adding a lot of text to the page, the site
utilzes well thought out tabs and pull downs. There is even a link for a
nutrition glossary to help with vocabulary needs.

A user can also Google from the site.
