Ratings and Reviews
Great little App with excellent selection of recipes and useful functions
I have found so many good cooking ideas for Janet and Billy in this app. I just love it and so do the kids, they gobble up almost everything I cook using Annabel’s App. The way it works is clever. You can just search for ideas if you want to cook using any specific ingredient. But I really like being able to select and mark which recipes the kids love the most with the “favourite” function and then just add the recipe ingredients to my shopping list. So when I get to the supermarket it’s all in the list to remind me. The Meal Planner thing also looks useful too but we have not used that yet but will definitely give that a try next week. Thanks so much for making a busy mum’s life that much easier.

Hi JD dm. Thanks so much for your lovely comments. We are delighted that you find AK App so useful. Happy cooking. Regards. AK Team.
It’s a thumbs up from us!
My little one is now 4 so I’ve been a fan of Annabel Karmel’s books for the longest time. I used to get flour and all sorts of ingredients all over the recipe books, but since discovering the app it’s now my phone gets covered!
The AK App is a time-saving, organisational and inspirational tool for the busy parent.
The features I loved in particular includes the shopping list which copies the ingredients onto a shopping list. I try and make meal planning more of a collaborative effort with my LO so she’s learned how to “favourite” recipes. There’re loads of other features such as the meal planner – oh how I wish this app was around when LO was weaning.
It’s a big thumbs up from us!
Surprising bad from a well known brand
Just don’t buy it.
First thing about the app is the content, there may well be “over 350 recipes on there” but there will only be a small number suitable for what you want to do. More filters would be better for eg by finger food, dietary req, freezer friendly and being able to apply two to maybe search for ‘chicken meals for an X year old’. The only filter ‘chicken/beef/veg’ often has mis-labelled the menu.
There are also a shocking number of errors, AK should be embarrassed; oven temp missed off, ingredients in the list which aren’t factored into the recipe and vice versa, typos etc etc. I have often googled a recipe to find out the correct info.
The app is also not user friendly; fussy eaters pop up that you can’t shut down, if you’re scrolling through the menus and click one then click out, you go back to the start.
That’s if, of course, it even works, when it regularly just doesn’t.

Hi deleted9. Thanks for your feedback. We were surprised to hear that you could not find any recipes that you wanted to cook! All the 350 recipes on the app have been carefully chosen to support busy families with delicious, nutritiously balanced ideas and inspirational options on-the-go; from Organic Baby Purees to tasty Chilled Toddler Meals. So there should be plenty there for everyone.
With regards to your comments on the filter functionality, the filters do in fact work exactly as you have described? Simply tap on the age range Category you are looking for, say "6 -9 months", this brings up all the recipes in that section, then tap of the "Filters" button in the top right corner to see the pop-up filters options e.g. beef, cheese, egg, chicken etc. Select one and then simply swipe through the filtered result for ideas and choose the recipe you like.
In terms of "errors". We have carefully proofread and tested each recipe so we are very surprised that you say there are errors. Please do come back to us and point these out as we will be pleased to instantly fix any you may find -> firstname.lastname@example.org
In terms of functionality and user-friendliness, we have developed the App following extensive user testing and have included the structure and functionality most requested by our test user groups, so we have developed our app for the majority use cases as opposed to building in functionality that is not required by our many thousands of satisfied users. Regards and Happy Cooking. AK Team
