Wide collection of recipes.

Ability to save favourites.

Ability to create shopping list.

Recipes don't have a clear criteria to determine if they are 'healthy' or nutritionally balanced or suitability for people living with diabetes.

Images in recipes are not reflective of actual recipes. For example Simple Healthy Lunch shows a sandwich for a mushroom recipe.

Recipes are from a range of sources and it's not clear if they have been tested.

Clinical review



Reviewer
: Frances Arenhold, New Zealand Registered Dietitian
Date of review: March 2024
Platform: Android
Version: 67.0.0
Comments: While the app's name suggests it offers precise, balanced recipes for people with diabetes, it pulls recipes from different sources without applying consistent criteria, critique, or testing of recipes. There is also a lack of information regarding the carbohydrate content of the portioned recipes which is important for the dietary management of diabetes. Despite these drawbacks, the app still serves a purpose for generating general meal or recipe ideas. However, for individuals specifically seeking carefully curated recipes tailored for diabetes management, it may not be the ideal choice.
Safety concerns: For people living with diabetes using the Diabetes Recipes: Healthy Food app should be undertaken with caution. Diabetes affects individuals in different ways and dietary and medical management of the condition varies. The 'diabetes' recipes on the app may not be suitable for all people living with the condition.
New Zealand relevance: This app is not suitable for all people living with diabetes and advice from a registered dietitian or health professional should be sought before integrating the app into the dietary management of diabetes.
