The Menu Production Record lists the amount of food you need to serve and purchase to adequately serve children in your care. It may also include actual quantities served, if recorded. Before printing this report, you should record menus and estimate attendance (at least). Estimating attendance allows you plan ahead of time, so you can purchase the appropriate quantities of food (as listed on the report). If you print this report after recording actual attendance and/or actual quantities served, the quantities needed based on actual attendance display on this report, as do the actual quantities prepared.
Note: Before printing this report, ensure that you have selected the correct Food Quantity Type in the Food List, as this affects the units of measure used on the Menu Production record when calculating quantities. For more information about selecting a Food Quantity Type, see Add and Edit Foods.
