In another embodiment, the nutritional elements of a food item may be compared to guidelines of a patient, and a selection of the food item may be made dependent on the comparison results. In accordance with a further embodiment of the present invention, a system may comprise a host operable to access food and client databases, and a client station in communication with the host. A machine-readable storage media may store a sequence of instructions which, when executed by the host, cause it to display and operate an interactive window in the client station to establish an individual identity.
