New app offers wealth of nutrition information on school lunches


New app offers wealth of nutrition information on school lunches
Lincoln Journal Star

Nutrition Services Director Edith Zumwalt said she bought the app, which is free to the public to use, from Nutrislice because it offers a wealth of information parents can get on their phones.âThey can see what theyâre (students) getting," she said. "All the nutrition information is there.âThere are numerous apps designed for school lunches, Zumwalt said, and staff researched a number of them before choosing Nutrislice (search Nutrislice in the App Store). It cost the self-supporting Nutrition Services Department about $14,000. Among the things Zumwalt likes about it is that it has pictures of all the meals.And those are all LPS meals, with photos taken by Nutrition Services staff. Not generic macaroni and cheese but the actual macaroni and cheese that ends up on the school lunch trays in Lincoln lunchrooms.
