Louisiana — Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana today announced a mobile app for the Louisiana 2 Step — the company’s free and fun motivational program designed to inspire healthier choices.
The 2 Step program offers tools and resources to help people take two simple steps to better health: eat right and move more.
The new mobile app has several features to help users maintain a healthy lifestyle while on the go:
• A list of 100-calorie snacks
• Visual portion guide
• List of exercises
• BMI calculator
• Educational videos
There’s also a dashboard where users can track their physical activity, food intake, health stats and body measurements. A built-in calendar keeps track of health-related events, such as fun runs or farmers’ markets, across the state.
Any iPhone user can find the free 2 Step app in his or her phone’s App Store by searching for “Louisiana2Step.”
