If you are interested in viewing the nutritional information of our menu items, check out our nutritional calculator! (Located on each grade level's "Menus" page)
Q: What is it?
A: Our menus contain a wide variety of choices. As such, simply providing a weekly average of nutrients for a menu will not properly reflect the actual nutritional value of an individualized meal a student could select. As a new feature to our Nutrition & Wellness initiative, our Nutrition Calculator is designed to allow a parent, student, nurse or any other interested party to evaluate the nutrition content of any combination of meal selections. The file is easy to save from the web site and is easily viewed on a local computer. The Nutrition Calulator allows for a more interactive, customizable, and in-depth look at nutritional value. It uses familiar drop-down selectors that show all of the items on a particular menu cycle.
Q: How do I use it?
A: Use the drop down menus to build your lunch. The estimated nutritional content of your lunch will show to the right. Click the link below to open the calculator for the desired grade level. A message box entitled "Manage Trust for Multimedia Content" may pop up on your screen. If so, click the "Play" button to be taken to the Nutrition Calculator. Below is a screenshot of how your calculator should look.
Note: Please make sure that your computer has the most updated version of Adobe Reader (you can download the latest version here: http://get.adobe.com/reader). These files contain interactive multimedia - you may receive a security warning the first time you use the Calculator that requires you to verify that you trust the file or the website.
