Learny Food FAQ

Q. How do I enter Parent Mode?

Answer

Simply double tap the Learny Food banner (the top part of the screen with the words Learny Food). If you have set up additional authentication you may have to enter a 4-digit passcode or authenticate using TouchID.

 

Q. What if I have forgotten my passcode?

Answer

There is a hidden Easter Egg (secret feature) to fix this. Follow these steps to reset the passcode:

  • Select a Taster in the “Choose a Taster” screen
  • Touch the “Taste Now” button
  • Type the following text in the Search text box at the bottom of the screen (without the quotes) “Passcode Reset”
  • You will see a message telling you that the passcode has been reset to “1234”

 

Q. How do I create new foods?

Answer

Foods get created by going through the steps of the “Taste Now” wizard. We feel that when the child performs, or partners in performing these steps that it is an important step in them taking a degree of ownership in the exploration of new foods.

However, you can also manually create new foods by entering “Parent Mode” in the “My Foods” screen. Here are the steps to accomplish this:

  • Select a Taster in the “Choose a Taster” screen
  • Touch the “My Foods” button
  • Enter Parent Mode (see “How do I enter Parent Mode” above)
  • Touch the “Add Food” button

 

Q. What is a Learny Bonus and how do I set it up?

Answer

The Learny Bonus is a feature designed to provide a little extra motivation for your Picky Eater to re-try a specific food. Perhaps it is a food they didn’t like the first time they tried it, or perhaps it is a healthier food that you would like them to keep trying.

Usually Tasters earn one ticket for each taste. When the Learny Bonus is turned on for a Food they will earn two tickets for each taste.

Here are the steps to turn-on Learny Bonus for a Food:

  • Select a Taster in the “Choose a Taster” screen
  • Touch the “My Foods” button
  • Enter Parent Mode (see “How do I enter Parent Mode” above)
  • Select the Food for which you wish to turn on Learny Bonus
  • Touch the Learny Bonus switch to toggle it on or off

 

Q. How do I delete a Prize?

Answer

There are two situations where you cannot delete a Prize.

  • Standard Prizes (delivered as part of the app) cannot be deleted
  • Prizes that have already been Claimed by a Taster cannot be deleted

So you can delete a custom Prize that has not yet been claimed. You can also hide a Prize from the Prizes list by making it inactive.

Here are the steps to delete a Custom Prize (one that you created), or hide any Prize:

  • Select a Taster in the “Choose a Taster” screen
  • Touch the “Get Prizes” button
  • Enter Parent Mode (see “How do I enter Parent Mode” above)
  • Select the Prize you wish to delete
  • Touch the Delete button in the bottom right corner to delete the prize, or
  • Touch the Active switch to toggle the prize as active or inactive
