Menu Development and Analysis
Having a well-rounded and nutritional diet should be something that is available to everyone. Whether it’s students who need access to healthy and affordable food in order to focus in class and learn at their best, or adults who need the energy and concentration to provide for their families. That's where HSFC comes in — we are committed to ensuring that all children and adults have access to free, nutritious meals that help them maintain healthy dietary habits! To do this, we offer nutrition consultant programs to schools and community organizations that help them develop nutritious menus and analyze existing ones to help make changes where necessary.

Why a Balanced Meal Matters
There are many reasons why a balanced meal matters for people of all ages. First and foremost, it provides individuals with the nutrition they need to focus on tasks and perform at their best. A healthy diet has been linked to improved cognitive function as well as academic performance, so it's important to make sure that the entire community has access to nutritious food. In addition, a balanced meal can help maintain a healthy weight. Obesity has become an epidemic in America, partially due to the cost of eating healthy to that of eating fast food. By making small changes to your school or food program's menu, you can make a big difference in the health and wellbeing of your community.

We'll help you identify areas of improvement and develop a plan to address these weaknesses. Our goal is to help you create a menu that is both nutritious and affordable that helps your community thrive!
Nutrition Consultant Program
To determine whether or not your food program needs the help of a professional nutritional consultant to meet the nutritional needs of the community, you can look out for these key indicators that your menu could be improved:
• A lack of variety in the types of food offered
• An imbalance of healthy to unhealthy options
• Struggling to meet nutrition mandates
