The Daviess County Public Schools food services department has announced mobile app and online options that will allow parents and guardians to view school menus and nutrition information about lunches and breakfasts served in DCPS cafeterias.
The MealViewer To Go app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play, or visit schools.mealviewer.com. Enter the name of any DCPS school and then select either the breakfast or lunch tab to view school-specific menus for the next 30 days. Nutrition information for each food item will pop up when the item is selected or when the mouse hovers over it.
The program offers an option of identifying favorite meals with a “star” to see when that menu will be served again.
Apollo High School, Burns Middle School, and Tamarack Elementary School have also served as pilots for electronic menu boards in their cafeterias that display nutrition information for each meal. The menu boards are scheduled to be installed later this year at College View and Daviess County middle schools and Daviess County High School.
“Our goal in making this tool available is to encourage conversations between parents and children about healthy choices and a balanced diet,” said DCPS food services director Lisa Sims. “We continue our dedication to providing delicious, nutritious meals that kids enjoy, and we invite parents to be involved through awareness of what our cafeterias are serving each day.”
