Where did all the recipes go???

Read update below...
Everything just disappeared! I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app...that didn’t work. It doesn’t let me login or even reregister. I contacted their support team a few times, NO answer. It is VERY rare for me to write a review, and a bad one at that. I am so disappointed with their customer service.

**update!! I uninstalled and reinstalled AGAIN, and it is working. So for any of you still having this issue, try doing that even if you’ve already done it. Even though the app works now, and I love it overall, they still get a 1 star for customer service. But I am changing my one star to 3, because the recipes are actually really good and my kids love the food. Ms. Karmel, (or the support team), if you do bother reading reviews, please take heed. Improve your customer service and respond to people who have PAID for your app.**

Thank you for taking the time to writing to us and please accept our sincere apologies for the delay on responding to you. We are not quite sure how we managed to miss your earlier comments. We generally monitor several channels through which our users can contact us and this one appears to have been neglected for a while. We will now be rectifying this going forward.

The actions you took in fixing the problems you were having were exactly the correct thing to do. So thank you for your perseverance.

About the time you experienced the issues we were undertaking several key updates to our App and we believe that it must have been during one of these critical updates that you downloaded your version and subsequently got the app errors. We we are pleased to say that the app is now very stable and working correctly. We know it is no excuse but Apps in general are very complicated little beasties (much like children in many cases) and sometimes it is very difficult to get them to behave as one would like.

Again, please accept our apologies and if you experience any problem in the future please contact us directly on and we will sort it out for you. Regards AK Team.

It doesn’t generate shopping lists

Recipies seem nice. It is not very handy to add one by to the meal planner, specially since there is no way to have a general overview of it. You need to remember what you already add and when. Then, once you succeed, there is not shopping list automatic generation, you need to add the recipes again! It will be really nice if there will be a nutritional preferences quiz at the beginning and then you have meal plan automatically generated, with shopping list. With the option to swap recipes if needed.

Hi araspatt - Thanks so much for your feedback. For your convenience we have 4 pre-populated, nutritionally balanced, Meal Planners, organised by age group, already in our App -> Access by tapping on "Planners" in the footer navigation bar on any page.

You can also create your own specific meal planner from scratch and add any recipes your baby likes to this planner. Follow the step above and go to "Planners" -> Tap on "Add A Planner" button -> give your planner a name e.g. Baby Millie's Meal Planner" -> tap "Done" -> tap "Create". Now go back to "Recipes" -> browse or search for recipes you like -> tap on and "Add To Planner".

You can organise the meal ideas (recipes) in ANY of the Planners by day of the week and time of day. You can also shuffle meals around in the planners to different days of the week or times of day -> just drag and drop. Also just tap on a recipe in any planner itself to call up the recipe details and add the ingredients to a shopping basket....... you'll get the hang of it in no time!

Where did all the recipes go?!

App was working fine until recently. Every section is blank. All my favorite recipes are gone. And it’s been like this for days now. I can’t even register because there is no next or done button after entering all my information. I’m going to uninstall this app. What a waste. 👎🏽
