Veggie Bottoms Kitchen is the perfect app to introduce kids to cooking with parents and caregivers! The fun loving, irresistible characters will keep kids giggling and coming back for more.The recipes are simple with step by step fun, instructions, and shopping lists.
Kids create their own smoothie recipes with the hilarious Chef Monty in his Test Kitchen! They can check the ‘clues’ from the chef by tapping his recipes to try to recreate his recipes. There are countless variations of smoothies. Enjoy quality time at home with them while expanding their dietary knowledge by leaps and bounds.
Beyond smoothies, there are over 40 wonderful and easy step-by-step recipes to start your family on a healthier path. They will be learning about shopping lists, following instructions, and most importantly, good food choices. You can sort recipes by a Veggie Bottom ingredient or by Vegan and the top three known food allergies – Egg, Dairy, and Nuts!
Teachers: This app is a nice fit for teaching Life Skills to your students and an inspiring recommendation to make to parents. This app is ad free and kid-safe. A tasty addition to your kid’s toolbox for life!
You can view the original Veggie Bottoms for iPad review by using the ‘Find” feature on this page. Show your kids the original book of several Veggie Bottoms characters via the videos in that review as well as this one. We are sure they will want to interact with these adorable characters. The graphics and audio are exceptional in both apps. Soon they will be recognizing fruits and vegetables on your shopping trips and checking the shopping lists right along with you.

What was the initial inspiration for your app?
After the release of our e-book Veggie Bottoms, a cooking app was a logical next step. Our whole thought process was to get kids more interested in / less averse to fruits and vegetables. Veggie Bottoms Kitchen encourages and enables them to actively get involved in the process of preparing healthy meals with their parents. There are many reasons getting kids in the kitchen early is a positive: it promotes family time, it habituates healthy eating and cooking, as a whole, is a great form of organic learning, stimulating creativity and curiosity.
What is your favorite aspect of your app?
From a conceptual point of view, I love to idea of marrying the digital world to the real one – encouraging physical action through the digital space. We don’t want kids glued to devices but with this app, it’s a tool that depends on the action and interaction of the child with their parents.If we’re talking about a specific aspect of the app itself, I have 2 kids with multiple food allergies and even though the culinary world is catching up, it can be difficult to find recipes that work for them. For that reason, it was important for us to include some sort of allergy filter that would allow a user to eliminate recipes by one or more common allergic ingredient. That little attention to detail can go miles for families like mine.
I also love the chef reactions. We put a lot of time and love into those. 🙂
Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?
Once again, we’ve made an app that was ad and in-app-purchase free for hassle-free experience, especially when the younger kids are playing with the smoothie maker section. We intend to roll out more recipes and recipe bundles as we go so stay tuned! We’re extremely proud of this app and encourage everyone to get into the kitchen and start cooking with their kids! These recipes are on the simpler side for a reason; no long cook times, no complex instructions or methods – just easy, healthy recipes intended to be done as a family! Get cooking!
