Is menu fatigue affecting your foodservice program's participation rates? Are students complaining they're bored with the food you serve? Depending on when school started and the length of your menu rotation, you may be repeating entrees for the second or third time already. Have students noticed and complained?

Are you wanting to freshen up your menu rotation? 

NutriStudents K-12 can help your program overcome menu fatigue. We offer 15 complete menu weeks for K-5, K-8, 6-8 and 9-12, with and without salad bar -- all certified by our Registered Dietitian as being fully USDA compliant. We also offer a variation on those 15 weeks with pizza on Fridays. Spice up your rotation by adding in a week or two or three of NutriStudents K-12 menus, or use the full 15-week rotation! You can pick and choose the menu weeks your students like best, using them in any order you choose. You do not have to use every menu week, nor do you have to use them in consecutive order. And, you can use them to supplement your existing menu weeks.

While our menus and recipes are completely "plug-and-play," feel free to adapt the recipes to the particular tastes of your students. Our clients have been known to leave  Sriracha out of a sauce recipe or substitute one form of a protein for another (chicken strips for chicken breast, for example), depending on which commodity foods they have in inventory.  

Freshen up your menu rotation with our chef-created, student-approved meals! Contact us today to tap into all the menus and support tools we offer.
