Increasing the Appeal of Student Meals

Another surprising benefit for Hondo ISD that has come from launching MENU Module is the impact on the appeal of meals for students. 

A feature of MENU Module is the School Café app.  When creating menu items in MENU Module, a picture of that item can be uploaded. This allows parents and students to “see” what’s for lunch today. In addition to the TDA food photo collection, Barbie’s teams took pictures of the actual menu items they prepared to feature on the app!  

The side benefit is that a CND or Menu Planner can visually see the layout of their serving lines ahead of time.  As Barbie put it, “I won’t be wondering why everything I’m serving is red!”
