Quick Pitch

Bon’App is setting the new standard for weight loss and nutrition education with a mission to eradicate our nation’s obesity epidemic. We are redefining how people think about food, while providing one of the best tools on the market for weight loss. 

Product/Service Details

Developed by a team of experts in nutrition, weight loss, and workplace health and wellness, our comprehensive nutrition education program offers an end-to-end solution for nutrition guidance.This innovative Nutrition Education Program is a customizable food tracking and education package, which engages employees and educates them about weight management and the impact of nutrition on their overall health condition. In addition, we offer an Application Programming Interface (API) which can be easily integrated with health/medical devices, fitness applications, or wellness platforms, allowing Bon’App to be the key nutrition component in any health and wellness solution.

Traction & Accomplishments

Participation in Healthbox's Boston accelerator, a program supported by anchor partner BlueCross BlueShield of Massachusetts, has allowed Bon’App to start three successful pilots; hire talent to grow the business faster; and gain traction: over 160,000 users and over 3.5 million food searches! We've also signed Independence Blue Cross as a client and launched our API this month.

How We're Different

The weight loss industry is a $60+ billion market in the U.S. alone; yet, many solutions being offered are ineffective.  Bon’App is unique in the marketplace because it allows people to learn about what’s in their food in a simple language (Calories, Sugar, Salt, Bad Fat) and provides an intuitive visual: a battery that depletes as you eat and changes color from green, to yellow, to red (warning near 0%).  Armed with this powerful application, people can finally understand what they eat and start Losing Weight!
