USDA releases Food Buying Guide Mobile App
The Food Buying Guide is an essential resource for food yield information for child nutrition programs. The Food Buying Guide from the USDA Food and Nutrition Service assists child nutrition program operators, food manufacturers and other stakeholders with menu planning. Now, the Food Buying Guide has gone digital to provide menu planning features at your fingertips. With the Food Buying Guide Mobile App, you can search and locate yield information for foods typically served in Child Nutrition, compare yield information to determine the foods that best meet the needs of your program, create a Favorites food list, and email and print search results, food comparisons and listings of favorite foods. The Food Buying Guide Mobile App also includes access to narrative content which provides child nutrition program-specific information for meeting meal pattern requirements, helpful information related to food purchasing and how to utilize food yield information in the Food Buying Guide, and additional resources related to meal pattern requirements and menu planning for child nutrition programs.
