appy winter!

fun, educational apps for kids of all ages --and for mom and dad, too!

for mom and dad With so many children faced with life-altering food allergies, this new app, YoDish, is a Godsend for parents. They can simply create a dietary profile for their children by entering any food allergies or sensitivities (i.e. shellfish, tree nuts, soy, etc.), and the app will direct them to reviews of restaurants in their area. Reviewers ( just like you an me!) can rate the restaurant as “Noshed it!”, “Ate it” or “Hated it” and add more detail like how clean their preparation process was, etc. Also, with matches for all dietary constraints (i.e. allergy friendly, gluten free, vegetarian, etc.), this app makes eating out a breeze for families who usually have to cook at home for fear of the unknown at restaurants.
