It has changed the lives of these mums – find out why!

Lauren from Melbourne has two kids and loves that the recipe and meal plans are flexible.

Lauren says, “I’ve been with Healthy Mummy for just over three years after Mr 3 was born. In that time I’ve lost over 20kgs and gone from a tight size 16 to a size 8-10.

“I gave myself one month to see if the meal plans could work for me and my young family. Three years later we have so many family favourites.

“From Healthier Hot dogs to the creamy bacon ravioli or the porcupine meatballs – I’m able to keep all the family happy with Healthy Mummy.”

I love that both the recipes and meal plans are flexible and I can easily make adjustments for family and personal preferences – or to work with ingredients I have on hand.

“As a working Mum – I absolutely love the variety the meal plans offer me. A few quick swaps here or there; and I not only have a meal plan ready to go – but my shopping list is ready and adjusted to the serving sizes and ingredients. I couldn’t ask for a better time and money saver!

“Pizza. Cake. Chocolate. Pasta. It’s all here most definitely ON the menu with Healthy Mummy. There’s no extreme calorie restriction or foods on the naughty list. This is a lifestyle change and learning new habits. But that doesn’t mean you have to leave all your favourite things behind!”

Mum of two Bridget from Victoria says the Healthy Mummy App was a “game-changer.”

Bridget says, “I have been following the Healthy Mummy for five years and the inclusion of the Healthy Mummy App with all the recipes and shopping lists was a game-changer for me and really made me fall more in love with the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges.

“It has allowed me access to my menu 24/7 and makes it so easy to adapt and change the week’s challenge menu to suit your needs for that day or week.

“I love how simple the shopping list is to follow and saves me time which is so important as a working mum. The recipes are so well set out and easy to search for and follow, even easier enough for hubby to follow.

“So many favourites in the recipes but my quick go-to are always San Choy bow and Mexican Lasagna, with Healthy Weet-Bix Slice to follow!”

The reviews on Trust Pilot speak for themselves!

So how does The Healthy Mummy App help meal times?


In the palm of your hand, you have a nutritionist creating you a weekly healthy and family-friendly meal plan, that is fully customisable from over 4,500 recipes. The meal plan covers all your main meals and snacks.


The App generates a personalised shopping list, making organising and budgeting for groceries a much easier process.


All the meals and snacks are ideal to meal prep on the weekend, to ensure weeknights are less chaotic.


Knowing what you’re all having for dinner, or even having it prepped ready to go, and being able to answer the dreaded question, ‘MUM! What’s for dinner?’ means that dinner times are easy, even enjoyable!


The Healthy Mummy App, helps you track your meals, snacks and therefore calories, so you can be in control and stay on top of your weight loss goals.

It’s no wonder Mums LOVE IT!

Rebecca from the Gold Coast has two kids and says The App has been key to her weight loss success.

Rebecca says, “I have lost 14 kgs with the Healthy Mummy plus another 10 I gained during my second pregnancy.  The meal plans, recipe hub, and shopping lists have absolutely been key to my success and are part of my daily life.

“Having all these amazing recipes at my fingertips is so convenient and the best thing is nothing is off limits! Pasta, chocolate, pizza, and all my favourite foods are in there.

My favourite recipes are Mexican Lasagna and Chocolate Weet-Bix Slice, so delicious you wouldn’t know they’re healthy!”

Mum of two Tegan from Melbourne says all the recipes are super quick, super simple, easy to make and taste absolutely amazing!

Tegan says, “I absolutely love the food section in the Healthy Mummy App. With over 4500 recipes it takes the ease out of having to think about what to have for dinner or lunches each day.

“I love that I can have a variety of different foods and that I can customise each day to suit what we eat and to suit my budget and that it’s not just a set meal plan.

“I love having the meal plan as it helps to keep me on track during the day and means I’m not left wondering what to cook for dinner. The recipes are all so super quick, super simple, and easy to make, and taste absolutely amazing.”

“The food section of the app has helped me during my journey over the last 3 years. It is literally like my best friend in my pocket. I also really love that the shopping list has all the ingredients broken up Into sections so I’m not running all over the supermarket missing things and it’s easy to follow.”

Danielle from Melbourne has 3 kids and says she can’t live without the App!

Daniella says “I started my journey with Healthy Mummy three years ago after the birth of my 2nd child!  I started out with just the Meal Plans.

The Healthy Mummy has helped me lose 20kgs and maintain a healthy pregnancy with my third child. I wouldn’t be able to live without the Healthy Mummy App, just having the meal plan, shopping list and recipes at the touch of a finger is perfect for a busy mum of three. 

Healthy mummy helps me on my journey with learning to balance and try new recipes, but the simplicity of the recipes helps too! My favourite recipe would have to be the Vanilla Slice. This is my secret indulgence!”
