Meal Planner Pal is a simple, easy to use, customizable meal planning tool. Creating a meal plan is hassle free and only takes a few minutes. You can stick to the basics, or add additional information such as number of calories in each meal and the number of portions of fruit and vegetables. This will then be summarised per day. There is a grocery basket which allows you to create a list of groceries alongside your meal plan - making your food shopping easier and faster. When grocery shopping, you can strikethrough groceries so it is easy to see what is left to buy. You can also email your meal plan and grocery list so you can print it off or share with others. There are also a number of extra features, such as: - The ability to set the number of days in a plan (as opposed to the standard seven days) - The ability to create your own meal library so creating future meal plans becomes quicker and easier -The ability to set reminders/alerts directly from the app e.g. to remember to defrost food or to remind you what you have planned to eat. - The ability to calculate the cost of your groceries What real users are saying about Meal Planner Pal: "This app is easy to use and really helps me stay on top of meal planning." "This app is so simple, which is what is so great about it. Easy to use and does exactly what it's supposed to." "This is exactly what I needed to plan weekly! It's easy to use and give you the chance to create a shopping list as you go. It also allows you to email it which is great!"




  • A simple way to feel organized!

    A goal for our family is to have healthy meals. With our extra curricular activities, we often get home late. Having the ability to plan meals and share lists is so helpful!
  • Upgrade required for options

    By Kundalini21
    I do not pay for apps. Upon quick exploration of the app, most options seemed to require the paid pro version. Not worth downloading if you are looking for a free option.
  • Needs some work

    By Sargisdottir
    Just started using the app tonight, it has crashed on me three times already. Even after I just bought the premium version. There are a couple of really basic things that don't work and should… When I click next meal, it should take me to the next meal, even if it is on the next day. Also, when adding a meal from my library, I should be able to add food from any previously saved meal. As it stands now, I can only add dinner meals to dinner, etc. But what if I would like to eat for dinner today what I had for lunch yeaterday? Pretty limited functions.
  • Why did I pay for ads?

    By GermanShepherdCrazy
    Not a happy camper! I really liked what I saw when trying out this app, so I bought it. I figured the ad at the bottom would go away, leaving a nice, uncluttered screen. NOT! What gives????
  • Problems with the plan restart

    By Goshen Project
    I love this app except for one thing... the plan restart does not work. Every time I try to restart my plan with a different date, the screen pops up blank. Can this be fixed? Karen
  • Exactly what I needed.

    I’ve always just done this all on paper. It’s annoying to keep going back to my groceries list and make sure I got all the ingredients. I like that all i have to do is focus on the day to day meals and the groceries list is made by the time I’m done meal planning. What an app! Thanks to the creator 🙂
  • It is easy

    By Mandie1229
    The only feature I would like would be to be able to move the items in your grocery list up and down so you can try to order them the route of the store or group like items together. Also would be nice with meals. For example I deleted bf from Saturday this week and I would have to delete lunch and dinner to get everything back in the right order. With the meal library it isn't that hard but it would be nice to just be able to move them.
  • Simple, easy to use

    By meaplanningmama
    Love this app! Helps me organize our weekly menus and grocery list. You can email your menu/grocery list and print off the menu/grocery list so the whole family can be aware of the menu. There are no recipes in this app, but that's what I love about it, you can paste in a weblink and picture of your own recipes.
  • Mostly crashes

    By RSmith5
    I just upgraded because I want to be able to keep my menus and recipes within the app and .99 didn't seem like a big deal. Most of the options just close out the app when you select them. With an app like this I'm not interested in taking the time and effort to enter all my stuff if I can't trust that it's going to work. Also, the style is pretty uninviting. It only works in portrait mode, and in order to be really what I am looking for, I would rather have a calendar that I put my recipe's on and build my menu from that. Also, the ability to share the menu and grocery list with my husband would be ideal. Haven't gotten too far into it, so I don't know if it has things like repeatable items for the grocery list, or am I going to have to set up a separate grocery list for things like milk that might not be part of my recipe. Can I import a recipe from the internet or at least imbed a link? or do I have to manually enter everything?
  • Having trouble saving meals to the library

    By Mallory55
    Is it just me? I just got the pro version, and after I fill everything out, there is no save option. All other features seem neat. I will give this app 5 stars as soon as I get to the bottom of this!
