For a school cook who feeds growing bodies and minds, a major concern is making healthy meals that comply with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans so that you qualify for federal reimbursement. This, of course, means you have to know the nutritional value of your recipes to make sure they meet the guidelines.
Many schools use CD-ROM label-making software, food labs, or private consultants for their school lunch nutrition labels. However, these methods tend to be overly complex or expensive. While it may sound difficult to obtain nutritional information for the wide variety of meals you make for your students, with the right software, creating school lunch nutrition labels is a breeze.
FDA-compliant online nutrition analysis software is the best method for schools. Not only is it easier to use and less expensive than other forms of analysis and label making, an online nutrition analysis and label software enables you to create, download, and print a complete nutrition facts panel in minutes. This makes it a highly convenient way for school cooks to provide nutrition information to concerned parents, school administration, or students themselves.
Using an online nutritional analysis software and label maker, you can efficiently create an FDA-compliant nutrition facts panel for any of your school lunch or snack recipes. With LabelCalc’s user-friendly software, simply follow these steps:

You can also use this feature to tweak recipes for students with special dietary needs.
