2023 Mom's Choice Awards Winner & Best New Mobile App Award. Science-based, parental control learning app. Daily screen time limits. Kids must complete learning apps before YouTube and games unlock. Builds balance, self regulation and delayed gratification for a happy, tech-healthy family.

Carrots&Cake brings the age-old parenting technique, 'Eat your carrots, and then you can get some cake' to life. How does it work? This parental control app allows you to select a list of your favorite learning apps your kids must complete BEFORE their free time games unlock.

The app allows you to take back control of your kids' devices while giving you the opportunity to:
• Put your kids' education first
• Build healthy screen time habits
• Boost learning potential and improve education quality outside the classroom
• Take advantage of the vast selection of educational apps for kids now available
• Enjoy that all-important quality family time away from the screens

That's right, long gone are the days of your kids spending hours watching Youtube or playing addictive games like Roblox or Minecraft. Instead, they can only unlock the limited time given for these apps by completing their learning activities first.

Plus, it's super easy to use and set up in 3 simple steps:

Choose the educational apps you want your kids to engage with. Then, set the minimum time your child should spend on these apps.

Choose which apps/categories should remain blocked (such as all games, entertainment, app store, and browser) when the educational apps are in use.

Select an appropriate reward time for completing the educational activities. All blocked apps will be unlocked and available for use during this reward time.

Limit screen time and take back control of family life the right way!
We understand that as parents, it's hard to control your kids' tantrums when they whine for their device, and the easiest option that'll calm them down is to give in and hand it over.

However, this encourages them to continuously associate the device with the dopamine-fuelled feeling of fun and excitement - which can ultimately lead to screen time addiction.

As we live in a technological world, we know eliminating your kid's digital interactions is unrealistic and unproductive. Carrots&Cake's screen time control helps to find a healthy balance by setting control limits and making kids EARN the reward of playing games instead.

There are now more educational apps for kids than ever before. No matter your child's age or interests - they can find an app that will provide them with hours' worth of learning!

But getting kids to engage with these apps has not been easy until now. Go beyond the average app blocker apps and download the Carrots&Cake parental control iPhone app. Calm the chaos without feeling guilty.

No more tantrums, no more mindless YouTube or gaming. Just worry-free screen time that'll give your kids a secret edge by exposing them to great learning. Limit your child's screen time effortlessly and effectively, and enjoy those quality family moments away from the screen using Carrots&Cake.
