KidneyAPPetite™ is a FREE App for iPhone™ and iPod touch™ that tracks protein, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, calcium and fluid. It can be downloaded from the Apple iTunes Store™.
How it works
The app uses data from the USDA National Nutrient Database. It allows patients to customize daily guidelines to match their personal nutrient prescription. As data is entered throughout the day, the app adds up phosphorus, potassium, sodium, calcium, and protein intake to show where the user is in relation to their nutrient goals.

Consensus Statement of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics/American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (the Academy) and the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (A.S.P.E.N.) recommend a standardized set of indicators be used to identify pediatric malnutrition (undernutrition) in clinical practice. These include weight-for-height/length, body mass index-for-age, or length/height-for-age or mid–upper arm circumference when a single data point is available.
When 2 or more data points are available, indicators may also include weight gain velocity (<2 years of age), weight loss (2–20 years of age), deceleration in weight for length/height z score, and inadequate nutrient intake. The full paper is here.
