What's for Lunch? It's Easier than Ever to Find Out

Visit school websites or download an app and find menus listed by school and including pictures, as well as information on allergens, nutrients, ingredients and carbohydrates.

APS has updated its school meal menus, making it more convenient for students and parents to find out what's for breakfast and lunch.

The menus are customized by school and posted to each school's website. They're also posted at APS.edu.

In addition, you can download the YumYummi mobile app from Google Play or iTunes App Store. 

The site lets you choose the school(s) menus you want to see on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. It also lets you identify dishes containing selected allergens including dairy, eggs, fish, peanuts, pork, shellfish, soy, tree nuts and wheat/gluten.

Hover over menu items and you'll see a picture as well as nutrients, serving size and ingredients.

You also can subscribe to receive a menu every month.

Another benefit of using the YumYummi site and app is that they allow students to rate the food, and that feedback will be used when putting together menus down the road.

"We wanted to personalize the menus as much as possible," said Sandra Kemp, executive director of APS Food and Nutrition Services. "We're also now able to update the menus so they will be accurate."
