A food item in the sense of this app represents one component of a meal, which is „homogenous“ in itself. Several food items make up a meal. For example: A Schnitzel with French Fries and Ketchup (the meal) consists of the Schnitzel, the Fries and Ketchup (the food items).
The food list on the main screen is sorted in alphabetical order. It is recommended to assign unique names to each food item and not repeat existing names, although the app won‘t hinder you to do so.
When clicking the small star in the top right corner of the food list, only food items marked as favorites will be displayed. Favorites can either be defined in the Edit Food dialog or via the context menu of each food item. Furthermore you may search for food using the search field (any string in the food name).
