Can you recommend a food scale that shows calories?

If I tell the scale I am weighing a banana, I want it to display how many calories that has banana by weight. Or brown rice pasta - how many calories by the weight of that particular pasta? Is there such a scale?
Several digital kitchen scales will weigh your food and supply nutrition information. Check out:
- EatSmart Digital Nutrition Scale - Professional Food and Nutrient Calculator
- Escali Cibo Nutritional Scale
- Kitrics Digital Nutrition Scale
- Salter Digital Nutritional Scale for Dry and Liquid Measure
Key in a code to access a food in the pre-programmed database or enter new foods by adding the information from the Nutrition Facts food label. Expect the scale to work well with individual foods but mixed dishes would be a problem unless you ran them through Calorie Count's Recipe Analyzer to generate a food label.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
