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.

Finding the best restaurant deals online usually requires a combination of stealthy Google skills, extreme patience, and subscriptions to sites such as Groupon, LivingSocial, or Restaurant.com. But now that we’ve downloaded BiteHunter, all we need to do is click on the app. BiteHunter aggregates deals in multiple categories – daily specials, happy hours, and discounts/special offers – and lets you search and sort deals based on proximity to you. You can set a custom location – say, if you know you’ll be traveling or heading out for a day trip &mash; or use location-based filtering to find deals around your hometown. Like seemingly every other app these days, BiteHunter links to your Twitter or Facebook profile, so you can share offers with your friends or do a little boasting when you find an especially awesome deal.
