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.

Weber’s on the Grill
For family chefs who prefer open flames to indoor kitchens, Weber’s on the Grill delivers all the know-how you need to prepare a complete meal using gas, charcoal, and other fiery means. From starters to sides, sauces to steaks, recipes are organized into themes, food types, cooking times, and weights – so it’s easy to determine how long it’ll take to grill, say, the perfect rack of lamb, no matter how each member of the family likes it done. Vegetarians will enjoy the ample grilled fruit and veggie options, while hardcore foodies will enjoy trying to recreate the perfect grill marks achieved on the app’s sumptuous photos. And if your dad thinks he’s the king of the BBQ, you can share recipes via email to show him how it’s really done.
