With two-thirds of American adults struggling with overweight and obesity issues, developing solutions to help people eat healthier has never been more important.

Mobile app HealthyOut, co-founded by CEO Wendy Nguyen raised a $1.2 million round led by 500 Startups, Blueprint Health, 37 Angels, Jan Brandt (AOL Vice Chair Emeritus), Peter Horan ( President/COO), BHV, partners at TSG Consumer Partners, NY restaurateur Dave Kassling and other angels. HealthyOut was a finalist at the PITCH SF 2013 Startup Competition and presented onstage at the PITCH SF Conference 2013.

At TechCrunch Disrupt NY this week, HealthyOut will be launching the public beta of its premium subscription meal delivery program in New York. Health enthusiasts around the world are encouraged to try their Android and iOS mobile apps to make eating out (or in) healthy.

Congratulations to Wendy Nguyen and her team at HealthyOut for raising seed funding!
