Our Breakfast Menu Builder has been a helpful tool for many of our clients to quickly and easily build out an entire year of breakfast menus in a fraction of the time required to manually plan menus. We're pleased to tell you we'll soon be introducing version 2.0, featuring enhancements that will make it even more user-friendly and applicable to foodservice programs operating under the School Breakfast Program for 4-day, 5-day and 7-day menu weeks.

Using a series of intuitive drop-down menus and customizable fields, you can select one or two offerings each day and the required components of each offering, including one or two whole-grain-equivalent (WGE) components. The tool will only allow you to save a day if you've properly chosen all the components for a USDA reimbursable meal, according to federal guidelines. As you choose your components for each day, a monthly calendar menu is automatically populated as are your daily Food Production Report templates for downloading, printing and completing the quantities served and amounts leftover. The monthly calendar menu tallies your WGE offerings for the week to ensure you're adhering to the USDA guidelines. You can copy and paste a daily menu to another day and repeat one month's menus to future months by simply clicking a button.

In addition to overall improved functionality, version 2.0 will include the following enhancements:

  • Capability for 4-day and 7-day programs to use.
  • Inclusion of PreK parameters.
  • Ability to build complete menu weeks verified to USDA guidelines that fall into two separate months. Version 1.0 isolated menu weeks within a calendar month and did not confirm compliance when 3 days fells into one month and the remaining 2 day into the next month, for example.
  • Compliance verification of weeks when there's one or more days of no school.
  • Option to upload school/district logo to the printable FPRs prior to downloading.

If you've yet to experience the ease of the Breakfast Menu Builder, we'd love to give you a demonstration. Contact us today by using the chat to the left, emailing customerservice@NutriStudentsK-12.com or calling 651.333.4295.
