Most weight loss and health programs out there promise to help us redesign our lifestyle by implementing new healthy eating habits and ridding yourself of old destructive ones. The goal is to make quick and fun improvements to ensure that you achieve a healthier weight without straining too much. And ultimately discover a new you!

The majority emphasize fine-tuning your daily routine by including more nutritious wholesome foods and engaging in body movement every day. Some offer meal delivery subscription plans designed to help you lose weight without focusing on keeping count of your calorie intake.

Sure, we know that regular exercise does wonders for your mental and physical health, but who has the time and patience to commit to a regimen and stick to it?

Fortunately, the digital age has provided us with a great hack: Workout and exercise apps that you can stream on your phone, your TV, your tablet—wherever is best for you—and use at home or on the go. Turns out, there’s a whole market of apps designed to make exercise easier and more fun for you, no matter what kind of workout you feel like.

There are in fact so many existing and emerging apps that promise to deliver this outcome but you may ask how successful they are and more importantly how does the Healthy Mummy App fare amongst this overwhelming sea of choice?

We have taken the guess and leg work out of the equation for you! We have researched the market and found we are the NUMBER 1 destination for recipes, meal planning, menu variety, budget family meals for MUMS – plus as an added bonus we rate TOP for exercise too!

In our research of 7 competitor apps on the market we found that the Healthy Mummy App  which is home to the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, ranked best overall for all categories aside from number of exercises on offer. Here we were only beat out by two other apps. And we still offer a very healthy 700+ different exercises and we still offered to highest number of Exercise Programs at 30, so topped versatility and exercise overall.

The Healthy Mummy App offers more than 6000 recipes as well as 29 different meal plans. (none of the other apps offered more than 10 meal plans.)

We were the only app on the market to offer budget meal plans and not only that we have over 1,000 recipes marked as budget!

For simplicity we also over 1,000 recipes with only 5 ingredients or less (find them in the 5 Ingredient Meal Plan).

Another feature not offered anywhere else is that all of our meal plans are also fully customisable. So you can switch / swap any meal or snack.

Stand out features not seen elsewhere are the Barcode Scanner, my coach motivator, photo comparison feature as well as calories and macros planned.

The Healthy Mummy app was the only app configured for Chrome Casting, allows access shop and blog within the app, we have the highest Trust Pilot rank of 4.4 and was the cheapest app on the market if you subscribe annually for just $119, which breaks down to just $9.92 a month.

Self-care by way of meditation and mental health support and podcasts are also more comprehensive than most.


The Healthy Mummy already stands in a league of it on as the only holistic national support system to help mums shape up and get healthy after having a baby. The program offers safe and healthy plans to all mums after having children – and offers programs and products that were safe during breastfeeding.

The Healthy Mummy’s 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge is now the biggest mums only healthy eating and weight loss program that exists. The aim of The Healthy Mummy has always been to empower mums to live a healthier life and it started off with just a few hundred mums using the programs on Facebook to now – 13 years later over 1.5 million mums being part of The Healthy Mummy Community and transforming their health, life and body on The Healthy Mummy Plans.

Firstly it is about healthy and REALISTIC weight loss and healthy living. It is not about trying to achieve a 6 pack – but about empowering mums to learn about healthy food, healthy living and doing it in a supportive environment.

Being a mum is HARD WORK and we all totally GET IT here at The Healthy Mummy! And this understanding and empathy shines through in the recipes, the exercises, the products and the amount of budget and family friendly products available!

There is absolutely no pressure on mums to look a certain way,  instead we offer support, advice, plans and products to help mums live their healthiest life when they are 100% physically and emotionally ready to do so – which could be a few months post birth or a few years. Everyone is an individual and we treat you as such.
