Even if you track your vitamins/minerals, there are lots of foods where it wont be able to be tracked because it isn't a legal requirement for manufacturers to put everything onto the Nutritional Information. Tracking those vitamins/minerals can actually cause a person to take supplements which may not be needed, and which, in some cases, can have very serious health consequences. Potassium is just one of them.

I think that people should be encouraged to add the vitamin/mineral information to the food tracker. I think that if someone is not counting calories they may not add them, or if someone doesn't care about how much vitamin c is in something, they may not add that information. BUT, it is important to someone else, and people should be encouraged to add ALL nutritional information that is available for that food. Maybe give extra points for adding vitamins/minerals???
