Problem: As we grow as a society, we learn more and more the importance of eating healthy. The problem is, living in a region known for fast, greasy food, it's often a challenge finding healthy, highly rated dining options when eating out.

Solution: Yealth helps people find healthy restaurants. Our "health score" algorithm gives a health rating to restaurants based on real customer Yelp reviews by analyzing the text for key health-related words. People looking for healthy eating options can use our color coded map to find and compare healthiness!
