A food production record is a log of how much food was made to feed the participants at a meal or snack. Food production records are often used to confirm that each participant received a portion size of each food item to satisfy the meal pattern requirements.
Notes About Food Production Records
Creating a Food Production Record for Multiple Meals
Next, select your Estimate Type and enter the date range for which you want to create food production records. In the dropdown menu for Estimate Type, there are two choices:
Estimate Method #1: Based on Participant Schedule
This method calculates differently if the dates selected are in the future or if they are today or in the past.
- If the date entered is in the future, then the estimates will be based on participant schedule. If there are no participant schedule in My Food Program, all food production estimates will be zero.
- If the date entered is today or in the past, then the estimates will be based on meal participation.
- There is also an option to "Use Maximum from Past 5 Days". In this instance, the food production estimate will be the same as the meal participation that is the highest from the most recent 5 days. If there is no meal participation entered in the prior 5 days, then the food production estimates will be zero.
