Use Select All to Record Meal Counts

When recording meals and attendance for the day, you can use the Select All feature to automatically record meal counts for all children who are currently marked in attendance. Note that you must still mark children as In before you can record meal counts.

Required Permissions: You must have the Record Attendance permission enabled on your account to record attendance and meal counts. If you are a sponsored center, your food program sponsor must enable this feature.

  1. From the menu to the left, click Food Program.
  2. Select Attendance/Meal Counts.
  3. Make sure the correct date, classroom, and meal are selected at the top of the page.
  4. If you have not already done so, check the box next to each child's name to mark attendance.
  5. When you are ready to record meal counts, click Select All. All children who are currently marked in attendance are marked as having received a meal. For example, if you are recording counts for Breakfast, all children who are still marked In at breakfast time are recorded as having been served Breakfast.
    Note: The Select All option only displays if there are children marked in attendance and you have reached the meal time indicated on the Site Details page.
  6. Click  to clear any children who were not present for the meal.
  7. Click Save.
