Top 50 Food Apps for Moms
Whether you're placating hungry kiddos, planning the week's menu, or getting ready for an all-too-rare date night, you're constantly answering the question: What's for dinner? Luckily, with its ability to keep you organized, map store routes, and gather reviews and recipes in seconds, your smartphone was built to solve this daily dilemma.
For Babble's roundup of the top 50 iPhone, iPad, and Android food apps for moms, we tried to cover the range of food-related thinking: from grocery shopping to meal preparation, all the way to food allergies and other dietary specifics that might be concerns for your family. In the end we were happy to find that many of our picks were available across not just the iPhone and iPad, but also the Android - because, unlike smartphone preferences, the love of a good meal is universal. We've broken down our top 50 food apps by category, price, and platform (iPhone, iPad, Android, or all of the above). We tried to find free versions of the apps wherever possible, but the truth is, many free apps either include ads or limit the number of features you can use. So if the paid version of an app felt stronger, then that's the app we recommended. We hope you have as much fun checking these out as we did testing them.

Pulling together more than 30,000 food and drink recipes from top chefs, cookbooks, magazines, and related foodie resources, Epicurious puts the meatiest features (figuratively and literally) of Epicurious.com in the palm of your hand. Recipe categories are organized by skill level and theme – “Dishes Kids Love” and “I Can Barely Cook” are among our favorites – but you can also search based on ingredients, the courses you’re preparing, or any dietary limitations you and yours might have. Additionally, Epicurious lets you add ingredients to a shopping list and save your favorite recipes. If you’re more of a classicist when it comes to recipe organization, there’s even an Epicurious app for an HP printer that enables you to send recipes directly to your printer.
