Nutrient Standard Menu Planning
Schools using Nutrient Standard Menu Planning must conduct nutrient analyses to plan school meals. Instead of working with specific food components in specific amounts, the menu planner analyzes the nutrient contributions from menu items served over a one week period. This analysis must meet the nutrition requirements for the age/grade group served. The nutrient values per serving are provided for each recipe. For more information on any of the menu planning approaches, click here to see A Menu Planner for Healthy School Meals or click here to view Book 7 of the Code of Federal Regulations parts 210 and 220.
