DCPS Offers Menu/Nutrition App For Families[PHOTOS]
Daviess County Public Schools food services department recently announced adding a mobile app and online options that will allow parents and guardians to check out school menus and nutrition information about lunches and breakfasts being served in DCPS schools.
The MealViewer To Go app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play, or visit http://schools.mealviewer.com Enter the name of any DCPS school and then select either the breakfast or lunch tab to view school-specific menus for the next 30 days. Nutrition information for each food item will pop up when the item is selected or when the mouse hovers over it.
The program even has an option of identifying your students' favorite meals with a “star” to see when that menu will be served again.
Apollo High School, Burns Middle School, and Tamarack Elementary School served as pilots for electronic menu boards in their cafeterias that display nutrition information for each meal. College View, Daviess County middle schools, and Daviess County High School are also scheduled to receive menu boards in their cafeterias.
According to, Lisa Sims, director of food services for DCPS, the goal for this tool is to encourage meal time conversations between families about healthy choices.
