Do let us know if you need the steps to add saturated fat to your tracker.
FYI...saturated fat should make up no more than 10% of total calories for a healthy adult (which is about 1/3 your total fat amount). For someone with heart disease, it should be less than 7%.
Hope this helps Dietitian Becky

Just remember that some foods record "ZERO Sat.Fats, when in fact they may have some in them"
I limit mine by only eating small portions of very lean meat and I don't often eat processed cakes/biscuits/ice-cream etc., which is generally pretty high in them. The bulk of my food is fruit and veges.

You can add saturated fat as an extra item to track in your nutrition tracker.
It should be under 25g according to my tracker.
Do you need instructions on how to add it?
