If you are working for a large organization that provides food for people, such as hospitals, universities, colleges, or nonprofits, creating cycle menus is an effective choice. Any non-commercial food provider could benefit from cycle menus as opposed to static menus. Static menus stay relatively fixed for long periods of time and rarely change. Cycle menus generally serve the same people every day, making changing meals a necessity. Cycle menus follow the same pattern, though, so it makes picking out meals clear-cut.
With menu planning software, food providers can copy and paste meals into a planned schedule, automating a lot of time spent writing out a repetitive calendar. Cycle menus usually follow the seasons, so you can save money by finding produce that’s in season. Planning cycle menus also saves on food waste, as you can plan recipes around similar ingredients and track your inventory better.
When you plan your cycle menus in menu management software, you are also able to compare your menus against recommended dietary reference intakes or your own specific goals. You are able to track how your menu stacks up against these goals, leading to more health-conscious ingredients and meals.
