Solid Starts App

Everything you need to know about introducing real food to babies with baby-led weaning or within a transition from spoon feeding to finger foods. Learn how to safely introduce more than 200 foods to baby. Each food has detailed nutrition information, choking & allergen guidance, specific instructions on how to cut and serve the food based on baby's age, videos of real babies eating the food, a unique recipe, and more. Better yet, every food's entry has been written and reviewed by a team of doctors, feeding specialists, swallowing specialists, and dietitians. Quickly search for a food (eggs, chicken, strawberries, anything!) and feel confident in exactly how to prepare it for baby. With a paid subscription, you can record baby's progress with a digital food log, track baby's favorite foods, make a list of foods you'd like to try later, and track any foods baby has had a reaction to which you can share with doctors and caregivers. This app will be a crucial tool to help you to raise a healthy, happy eater, avoid picky eating, and enjoy family meals!

Solid Starts app reviews

  • Can’t log food 1/5

    By Kake2211
    I like this app, it keeps crashing, saying I can’t log food, won’t save anything. I wish it was working which is why I paid $10 for it, I think I want my money back!
  • Great idea, poor execution 1/5

    By AMHBluebird
    Solid Starts has great information and for that I’m thankful. I had high hopes for this app…but it just isn’t worth it. It’s nice to see pictures of serving size suggestions, but other than that, I’m better off just Googling foods and keeping my own notes. This app just doesn’t offer that much, imo. More often than not, this app is crashing or signs me out - which means I’ve had to delete it and then redownload it. It never remembers login information. Customer service was nice when I emailed for help, but I think I’m just going to stick with Googling what I need.
  • Unfortunate 1/5

    By FridaB24
    I really really wanted to enjoy this app, it was so useful but I had to cancel because logging ANYTHING only works once in a blue moon and it’s so frustrating. Really sad.
  • Doesn’t work half the time 2/5

    By Wooooooottatata
    Constant issues with favorites and tracking not saving. I like the concept of the app, hence why I paid the $10 for it. But unfortunately, it never seems to work. I am actually pretty upset by it.
  • Don’t work half the time 3/5

    By Lriddell0313
    It’s great when it works so you can log stuff. But I’m paying for an app that only works half of the time.
  • New update makes it literally impossible to track foods 1/5

    By bellamama610
    When we reached out for help, tech help made us log out and log back in which erased our entire history of foods we have given our child. Useless!
  • Crashes Constantly 1/5

    By Miapie
    While the information in this app is helpful, it crashes CONSTANTLY which forces you to input the same info over and over. For a paid app, this is absolutely unacceptable and they should be providing refunds if they can’t provide a functional experience.
  • Crashing again 1/5

    By BB1230
    It won’t let me log any food or save my notes in the tracker. Very frustrating.
  • ProgramIs good, appIs insanely buggy 2/5

    By Ray2289
    I’m lucky if it actually lets me track food instead of throwing an error and telling me to email a non existent support address. Very frustrating. The latest versions of the app don’t seem to help
  • Unable to add foods! 1/5

    By jen09876543216969*
    My app is updated, but I get an error every time I try to add my babies food to the tracker for the day…I’ve tried multiple days in a row with no luck!
  • App never works 1/5

    By tayter93!
    I have been using this app for two months now and it never works. It constantly logs me out and when I log back it I have to set up my child’s profile again. Even when I try to log food it says please email support. I will not be renewing my subscription.
  • App crashes most nights even WHEN re-downloaded 1/5

    By dilemma fret
    Have experienced multiple nights where this crashes a bunch and I have to re-download and login to log anything. Tonight, even after trying multiple rounds of this any time I try to log a food it crashes again. This is super disappointing since the entire point of having this paid subscription is being able to log in real time - if I am going to have to retrospectively when the app happens to work I might as well just use a note in my phone..
  • Frustrating 2/5

    By BiasCuts
    The information provided by solid starts is excellent, however the design of the app is dreadful. It’s clumsy, buggy, crashes without warning, fails to record entries and favorites, and there is no way to enter commonly eaten foods quickly - every time you want to record something you have to look it up, select it and then record it. I had hoped to use the app and tracker for my child’s first year but I can’t because it only works 30% of the time I open it and then the 30% of the time it does open it hangs and then crashes.
  • Great customer service 5/5

    By Swalls123
    I had a weird issue with the app so I emailed their customer service email and was contact right away with the issues resolved. Probably user error! Thanks for being so quick to get back to me!
  • Not worth the hassle 2/5

    By Awkwrdblondie
    Pros: - Gives serving suggestions and ages - Has a lot of different foods in the database Cons: - App keeps logging me out - Doesn’t let me scroll on certain screens (ex: forgot password screen, can’t hit submit button. Calendar screen, can’t see what food is logged .) Wish I wouldn’t have paid for the subscription but since it wasn’t that much I’ll just let it go.
  • always loading 1/5

    By jinxbot
    app always in the loading state. rebooting the app doesn’t solve the problem
  • I’ve been giving this app a chance 1/5

    By 101940
    Had this app for 6 months now and it is great to be able to track food intake and find new foods to try. But it’s been crashing so much and signing me out and sometimes o can’t even input information. I don’t think I’ll be renewing my subscription. I’ll find another way to track food and find new foods and ways to serve.
  • Helpful tracker, buggy app 3/5

    By LHMama55627
    This app regularly experiences bugs in which users are logged out and can't log back in. We are told to delete the app and redownload, or email their support team. Wish we didn't keep getting logged out. The inability to scroll up in the app to hit things like an Enter key when the keyboard is open is also a frustrating UX.
  • App crashes constantly 1/5

    By FancyPup7204556
    Whenever you click on a food item, all immediately crashes.
  • Great for BLW, subscription is meh 4/5

    By stronggjost10037
    This app is amazing for baby led weaning. Everyone who watches my son has the app as well. I feel no worry or anxiety watching him eat whole foods because I know it’s been cooked and cut correctly depending on his age. I feel like if I didn’t have this app I would’ve given in to serving purees. I’m so very grateful for this apps existence. The only reason I rate it 4 stars is because of the subscription feature. It logs food for you so you know what baby has tried, when they tried it, and if they had a reaction. The problem is with the fact that it constantly logs me out. So now I just log everything myself in my phones Notes. I am glad that I did the free trial before actually purchasing the subscription.
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By Lady Kairi
    Paid for the year subscription and can’t do anything beyond giving them my money. Can’t add foods to any list or anything. Can’t even update my profile. All it’s good for is a flip book of pictures of foods.
  • Bug means I can’t add anything to my tracker 1/5

    By Celestialn
    Additionally, the error text is missing from the app so I have no idea why. Come on guys, this is amateur hour stuff.

    By with_sarade
    After paying for a year subscription, the app won’t let me add anything to my favorites, or log anything in the calendar. Just a complete waste of money for a subscription when it wasn’t encountering any errors as a free user. I WANT MY MONEY BACK.
  • Keeps Crashing 1/5

    By CLF013
    Cannot even get the app to open
  • This app is absolutely RIDICULOUS! 1/5

    By mkmnl
    Who are the doctors and therapists inputting this information? Come on people, use your common sense ! You do NOT give a baby meat on the bone at 6 months! Nor would you feed the baby a taco with salsa, sour cream and or mole sauce. This app is a joke right ? God help these poor babies
  • Crashes 2/5

    By amandaJeanB
    I spent $9.99 just for the app to never work. Always crashes when I try to open it. If I do get it open, it won’t let me log anything. I have updated and even re-downloaded the app and still nothing will work.
  • Not worthy 1/5

    By Geno-rj
    I am tired of this app crashing over and over again. The new version did not work! 2.1.0 just installed and guess what: still crashing and not opening it! And btw, my previous review was deleted because I did pointed out that coding is not good on this platform. Don’t waste your money. Worthy to follow them on Instagram at least.
  • Can’t even open app 1/5

    By hnpoppinga
    Made the mistake of purchasing the annual subscription and it literally crashed my app and I haven’t been able to open it since. Absolutely ridiculous.
  • Crashes or can’t open it 1/5

    By Jackieamb3r
    So frustrating! I can’t even open the app to use it. I hardly even try anymore but sometimes I want a quick guide on how to serve something to my LO and I can’t even open the dang app to look. Super annoying to pay for a service and it just be an app that sits on my phone untouched. Unfortunately I made the mistake of paying yearly upfront. Don’t make the same mistake I did. I did like the app when I could actually use it.
  • Not worth it 2/5

    By *Chels-trueself
    Unfortunately I paid and downloaded this app and updated my information. However it won’t save any of the data I attempt to save and every time I try to reach out for assistance my email is kicked back. I’ve tried to get a refund and cancel the subscription with no luck.
  • Edit- Update 5/5

    By abrm20
    I was having issues with the app crashing. I tried to uninstall and reinstall but it wouldn’t even let me reinstall. I had emailed customer service, they were so kind. Gave me a few tips and the app is downloaded and working again!
  • Calms my nerves! 5/5

    By Jamie Vel
    This app is amazing—gives so much free knowledge and helps know how to serve food to my baby.
  • This app was my favorite, now it won’t work 3/5

    By ashmarie223
    This app was a lifesaver for a while. Now it won’t open when I need it. Trying to give my 11mo some cucumber and I don’t know how to cut it.
  • So glitchy 1/5

    By FTM-Hope
    I was excited about this app since I am a FTM and wanted a little guidance but 99% of the time I go to use the app it’s glitching. It’ll just keep closing the app while I am using it. It won’t let me log food half the time. It’s just been way more of a nightmare then help. Tech support does get back to you fast and it’ll start working again for a day or two and then right back to the same thing.
  • App Deleted All Data 2/5

    By kmorrissette
    I have relied on Solid Starts to guide me in introducing solids to my first baby. It’s been a lifesaver! However, a recent update caused the app to log out of my account, and when I logged back in, all my child’s data had been erased. This would have 5 stars otherwise.
  • Good content when functioning 2/5

    By RachaelDa
    The content itself is great when the app actually works. Every time I try to open it, the app just shuts down and I can’t access anything (and yes, I have the latest version). I even upgraded to the paid version to keep track of the food we’ve tried but it’s useless without being able to open the app at all.
  • Pointless 1/5

    By Sasha Campo
    This app could have so much potential, but it’s essentially useless as is. All you can do is search food? And favorite it? There’s no feeding schedules, tips, recipes etc. Do not waste your money!
  • Great info TERRIBLE APP 1/5

    Skip the app and just use their website. The app crashes CONSTANTLY and is pretty much unusable. They also don’t have everything listed on the app and you can get more information from their website which is very user friendly.
  • Good idea, very buggy app 3/5

    By Cameroncrazie
    I get an error every time I try to log a food. The concept is amazing but this functionality is totally broken.
  • App Won't Work 3/5

    By missoliviawtipton
    I absolutely love this app when it works. It worked for months but now it won't even open on my phone. My friend and I both have been having to go to the website to get our information which stinks since it's not just an easy click. Wish something could be done about this because the info on the app is pertinent for my family and we're also paying for the subscription so it's not ideal.
  • Great if it opens 3/5

    By Ayden Cari
    I have a brand new 14 pro, and I paid for this app and it’s perfect! It tells you how to cut the food for your baby and you can track what they’ve eaten. I love it so much! Only problem and the reason I’m giving at three stars, is that when I open the app on my phone, it immediately shuts down. I have to go open it on my tablet to use it at all and it will no longer save any of my information.
  • Great content, could use a “multi-add” feature 4/5

    By MegaMegaMegannnn
    Best part about this app is the food information content. It tells you everything about just about every food! The “How to serve” info on each food is so valuable. I love stats, so using the tracker feature is fun, but I wish there was some sort of multi-add ability. Now that my baby is almost 1, she’s eating a bigger variety of foods each day and it’s a little painstaking to have to add each one, one at a time.
  • Keeps crashing 1/5

    By MrsVrz
    I’ve been paying for this app yearly and it keeps crashing, I can’t even open the app. I updated it to the last version and still nothing. Is frustrating when you are paying for an app that you can’t even use.
  • Fantastic resource, unreliable tracker 4/5

    By Jacki468
    This app is fantastic as a database. I use it all the time with my baby. I had the paid subscription to log food and had issues being able to save my changes. There was always an app error. I tried offloading, checked for updates and restarted phone. As another reviewer mentioned, logging the food is time consuming so I was not going to go back and add if the app did start working. Additionally, I paid for solid starts course. It would be great to have access to those resources in the app, connecting the recipes to the food tracker. I will still use the non-paid app!
  • Can’t open the app!!!!! 1/5

    By amandaxy
    Can’t even open the app……
  • Great until the update 2/5

    By jacquelinetb
    I used to reference this and log my baby’s food religiously. I would reference for reassurance and loved going back and seeing the progress through her solids journey. I still think they are a wonderful source for parents and caregivers, but the update has been so frustrating, I rarely open the app anymore (logs out, crashes, can’t log food, food descriptions and feeding suggestions aren’t properly loading) and will be canceling my annual subscription. It was really great while it lasted. I’ll be referencing their Instagram and google searches instead.
  • Good info, bad app 1/5

    By Sizzle39
    I’ve been paying for this app for a few months now, and it has tech issues that need to be fixed. The app will not open frequently- it will crash the second it starts to load. I have the latest update on the app so this is not the problem. The only way to fix it is by deleting the app and reinstalling it, but that is frustrating to do considering it’s happened probably 5 times now in 2 months. I cancelled my subscription for now and maybe will try again later. The info they have is great, so hopefully they’ll fix the bugs.
  • App not opening 3/5

    By MP 82
    I have been trying to open the app for the last several days and it won’t open. It starts like it is about to and then it just closes. I am not able to see my data and add things that my kid has tried. This is frustrating! Loved it while it was working though!
  • App keeps crashing 1/5

    By sd23445666
