How to Use Food Tags

About Food Tags

When creating or editing a food, you can assign tags to add additional properties to a custom food.

If you're following one of the Weight Watchers Points programs, use the "Tags" feature to mark foods as fruits, vegetables, or alcohol, etc. This ensures that we calculate the correct value for zero point foods or alcoholic beverages.
