Recording Whole Grain-Rich Food


Under the meal pattern guidelines, you must serve at least one whole grain-rich food per day. You must also indicate that the food was whole grain-rich when recording menus.

When you record meals or create menu templates, you can mark the Bread/Alternate component as whole grain-rich when appropriate. If you select a saved menu template that includes a whole grain-rich food that you marked, the slider retains your settings. For example, if you saved a menu that includes Whole What Bread and set the Is This Whole Grain-Rich slider to Yes, the slider is set to yes when you select the menu on the Enter Meal page.

Note that your food program sponsor may also have created foods and already marked them as whole grain-rich. When you select such foods, the whole grain-rich slider is automatically set to Yes.
