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.

Serving Sizer Recipe Converter
Whether your family is just getting started or competing for size with the Duggars, you can use Serving Sizer Recipe Converter to ensure that everyone gets the right portion at mealtime. The relatively simple app lets you store recipes and convert serving sizes based on how many mouths you need to feed – a feature that, oddly enough, a lot of recipe-organizing apps charge for. Entering your basic numbers can take some time depending on the size of your recipe, but once you’re done, the conversion process is simple. You either enter a custom conversion ratio or use the preset ratios to scale down or size up portions. We wish it were possible to save recipes, but if you’re as mathematically challenged as we are, having a free, simple ratio calculator in the kitchen is help enough.
