A Free Nutritional Analysis Software for NSLP CEs

MENU Module is a web-based menu planning and nutritional analysis software available to school foodservice authorities in Texas at no cost!

Every district, and sometimes sites within districts, handle day-to-day food production differently. But all districts must spend the time to calculate the nutritional value of each menu. If the time consuming calculations were automatically handled, what could you accomplish with those extra hours?
