Not thrilled with the vegetable medley in the school cafeteria? There's an app for that.
In a deal with Nutrislice, the Florida Department of Agriculture is providing a digital menu service that allows students and parents to peruse school menus and then rank dishes. Cafeterias around the state, including Miami-Dade County, will offer previews that include photos of dishes, ingredients and nutritional content, and an option to give feedback to the local districts.
“A healthy diet is crucial to academic success. By providing children and parents with technology to plan kids’ meals at school, we can help boost performance in the classroom,” Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam said in a statement.
Translation: if the beefaroni is gross, vote it off the menu.
