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.

Quick – how many tablespoons of fresh basil equals one tablespoon of the dried stuff? What’s 1,000 grams of milk in ounces? For these and other everyday conversion questions, Kitchen Calculator is a real boon. No more need to remember the ratios that’ll turn treats from your European cookbook into American masterpieces. Simply enter your source measurement, and the app converts it into whatever equivalent you plan to work with, including, if you happen to find yourself outside the kitchen, units of temperature and length. If you’re an especially meticulous chef or don’t like the idea of re-entering items each time you cook, Kitchen Calculator also offers a Pro version that enables you to store measurements and re-calculate items into fractions.
