Did you know 90% of parents worry daily about what their children are eating?


Mini Mealtimes is a UK company that helps parents easily understand their children's nutritional needs. After launching this year, Mini Mealtimes founder Marie Farmer is looking to raise a minimum of £5,000 to help make the app bigger and better.

With just a few taps, Mini Mealtimes gives parents personalised reports, recommendations, recipe ideas and most important of all - peace of mind. After a two week free trial, It costs £2.99 a month (which works out to just under 10p a day). 

Your support will make our vision for the future a reality. We will use your money in three key areas:

1. Reach more parents through targeted online advertising.

2. Add new features that parents asked for, like the ability to add meal plan ingredients directly to their weekly food shop in one click.

3. Increase and refine our database of food so we can adapt to all dietary needs and allergies.

I was inspired to create Mini Mealtimes after my son turned one and my weaning woes began. I struggled to get him to eat and constantly doubted myself. Every night going to bed, I was never sure if he'd had the right amount or type of food that day. I asked other mums and so many of them felt the same way.

I decided to solve the problem myself. I talked to a lot more parents and experts and forged ahead, as I wanted to make my mark and help other parents not feel so lost and unsure. Peace of mind is what it's all about. Mini Mealtimes launched in Spring 2019 and I'm excited and eager to make an impact in parents' lives across the UK and hopefully someday soon, globally. The tech and digital health market are projected to be worth £200 billion in the UK alone, so it's a really exciting place in which to be innovating.


"My son is constantly snacking and always seems hungry, this app is a great way to track his eating habits, now I don't have to remember what he's eaten, definitely try this app".

Rachel mother of three


"Mini Mealtimes is the perfect mix between MyFitnessPal and Food Maestro so I've found it useful, especially if my daughter is going through a fussy phase" 

Judy mother of one

"I love finding out how my toddlers eating habits change for a week. Now I don't feel so bad if he doesn't eat very much".

Katie mother of one
