"Carrots&Cake creates a compromise between parents having full control of their child’s device and kids having full control. Kids have agency, but parents decide which apps kids use."

Carrots&Cake applies the oldest parenting technique to screen time:

“Do your homework before you play.” In other words, 
“Eat your Carrots before your Cake.”

Our app is built by parents, backed by science, and developed with doctors, teachers, and technologists.

Our approach

When our kids started using screens during the Pandemic, we were torn. We wanted them to be tech savvy, but we also wanted them to be well rounded. 

We set screen time limits, but our kids threw tantrums and rebelled when their time was up. Life turned into a negotiation. We tried parental control apps, but the technology didn't work. They were hard to set up and our kids broke out. Plus, we found the approach of simply limiting screen time flawed.

We needed something better, so we made Carrots&Cake. Pulling together a team of experts, we built an app focused on improving the quality of kids’ screen time. Now our kids have balance, we are happier, and our family is connecting.
