What's New

Version 2.6

90% of children go through a least one lengthy stage of fussy eating. But there is a silver lining. Parents can help shape their child’s eating habits, and we’re here to support that process.

Annabel Karmel & Co have implemented the in-app purchase functionality in the application so that parents of "Fussy Eaters" can purchase the recipe bundle within the app using iTunes in-app purchase.

This allows users to pay once and access the premium recipe content available in the bundle which will be available to them forever until the time the app is uninstalled from the device of the user.

Nice idea but some issues with functionality

I like the range of interesting recipe ideas. One odd thing is that the pictures sometimes don’t match the recipes, which is jarring but sometimes temporary (oddly). Also the functionality needs some work. If I create a food plan then flick through recipes and try to add one to a time (eg Monday night) it will tell me if that space is full in my plan but not suggest alternatives. I have to go out of the recipe area to recheck the planner and see what slots remain then I have to try to find the recipe again to add it. A clunky process. The basic content is lovely but the app itself needs work to be efficient for a busy mum

Love the app!!

Having a Toddler & a 7 month old baby, I find the app fantastic for easy and quick access to brilliant recipes they enjoy! It makes my life a whole lot easier to have access to recipes that generally take no more than 30 minutes to prep and cook. Plus the option to batch cook and freeze the majority is a saviour! Very clear and easy to follow, especially for someone like me he isn’t the best chef in the work. Absolutely love the app!!

You might need to review the word ‘toddler’ in your advertising

I just purchased this having seen that on your app title this features toddler menus. I am disappointed having just looked though to find no toddler section a jump from 9-12 months to children and family with some totally unsuitable meals. Waste of money as I specially searched for. Toddler meals app.
A real shame, my friend has one of the books which features fantastic toddler meals. Disappointed for this reason although I can see that for other stages and with the time to sift through (which I don’t have) its a good app with good recipe ideas.

Developer Response ,

Hi, thanks for getting in touch. The recipes in the Children and Family section are suitable for toddlers and are designed to be enjoyed by the whole family (sometimes by adding a bit more salt or spice for the grown ups). They are designed to introduce new flavours and textures, cut down on meal prep for different family members and enable the whole family to sit down and eat the same meal together. Please get in touch via if you have any questions.
