Adding my custom meal into the app database so other people can access it. Given that the nutrient content entered is from proven resources like for me I used Malaysia Food Composition Table.
The reason for this feature is to reduce confusion for my client as to which meal to choose from when they keyed in their meal. Also I can help them entered the nutrient content for food that is not in the database. I can insert my initial in the meal name that I entered through the custom meal,and my client can easily search for it.

If you create a custom food it will be usefull to share that custom food with your client. That way clients who are not use to know macronutrient especifications can just use the one created of shared. Or the ability to let the trainer update the Food Data Base so the custom foods created can be shared with anyone.

Brands yes! but only one version, the correct nutrition data from the nutrition label! wouldn't want it to get messy like my fitness pal is currently with so many versions of one food that you have to validate it by checking website for the real macros and calories.
