Nutrient density vs completeness

What’s the difference between the nutrient density score and the nutrient completeness score?

The nutrient density score is useful when looking up foods and making comparisons between one food or recipe with another in terms of its micronutrient content. The nutrient completeness score tells you how nourishing your meals were in aggregate for a given day, estimated against your micronutrient requirements.

It’s normal for your nutrient completeness score to be lower after breakfast than after breakfast + lunch + dinner. This is simply because micronutrient intake is usually spread over 2 to 3 meals.
