Child Nutrition Goes Digital: Food and Nutrition Service Launches First Food Buying Guide Mobile App (USDA)

USDA: Child Nutrition Goes Digital: Food and Nutrition Service Launches First Food Buying Guide Mobile App. “The FBG is the essential resource for food yield information for all child nutrition programs, including the National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program, Summer Food Service Program, and the Child and Adult Care Food Program. Yield information helps operators know how much food to purchase and how that food will contribute to the meal pattern requirements to ensure that children are getting proper nutrition through the programs. Program operators can also use the FBG Mobile App on-the-go to make quick purchasing decisions from mobile devices. The new app includes food yield search, comparison, and navigation features for more than 2,100 foods typically served in child nutrition program settings, and can help users create favorite foods lists.” The app is iOS only at the moment; Android will come later.
