Google likes to include calories in search results

Anything extra you can provide to Google, whether it’s reader reviews, cooking and prep times, or in this case, nutrition information, will help the search engine to better understand your recipe.

Including nutrition information in your recipes can help your search rankings and click-through rate, so it never hurts to include it!

Your readers will appreciate It

Have you noticed that restaurant menus nowadays all include nutritional information? People are becoming increasingly more aware of the food they are eating and the nutrients that food provides. Make it easy for your readers to count calories or adhere to a specific diet by giving them the information they want from the get-go. We see you carb counters out there!

Before I signed up for Nutrifox, the number one question I got from my readers was, “how many calories is this and is this gluten-free or how much fat does this have” And it was just too much for me. I don’t have time for that. And then Nutrifox came around and I haven’t gotten that question since. It’s been great.

Do you have to include nutrition information? 🤔

By all means, no! It’s certainly not a requirement. If you’re a dessert blogger, you may cringe at the idea of adding nutrition information to your recipe cards. After all, you don’t want to scare away people who see that your cheesecake recipe is a whopping 800 calories per serving. It’s totally fine if you decide to opt out of including this information. 

However, keep in mind that readers making a cheesecake recipe will usually expect that it will not be a low-calorie dessert anyways.

Just a bit of food for thought 🤓 as you navigate the world of nutrition information!

The TLDR;

Nutrifox provides a way to quickly calculate accurate nutritional values of your recipes and provide Google and readers the information they need. Nutrifox is a user-friendly tool for an otherwise daunting task that will save you hours of time — hours better spent creating recipes and connecting with readers!
