There’s nothing more frustrating than opening all the kitchen cupboards and waiting for inspiration to come to you. The time you spend thinking about what to prepare can actually be spent cooking the meal. Menu planning is important — it saves time and money, promotes healthier choices, improves grocery shopping skills, and keeps mealtimes on schedule. Our registered dietitian nutritionists — with years of experience working with varied healthcare settings — have designed these menus specifically for your residents and their dietary needs. In addition, our weekly menus are printer-friendly and ready to use without the need for special software.
The use of standardized recipes ensures menu items will be consistent in taste and quality every time. Recipes are linked to your designated weekly menu, and you can search Lintons360's database for additional options. Allergen icons are easily recognizable, while the Number of Servings option helps you to avoid leftovers or shortages. Ingredients are conveniently listed below the cook time and temperature, cooking method, and serving size. HACCP Critical Control Points (CCP) are listed on each recipe to ensure the dish is cooked properly and safely. All recipes can be viewed on the website or printed for reference.
Nutrient Analysis & Dietary Restrictions
Consumers want to make informed choices about the food they eat. To do that, they need to know one very important thing: What’s in the meal? Lintons360 provides a precise Menu and Nutrient Analysis to assess compliance with all dietary specifications. The analyses are broken out per meal and per item, while the Diet Extensions Reports provide instruction on how to serve each item for both standard and therapeutic diets. This is one of the most critical reports available for your staff.
Weekly Shopping Lists
Grocery shopping can be a difficult task — even for the most organized person! Lintons360 Weekly Shopping Lists are provided so your team can easy source all the ingredients needed for every meal. Unhealthy (yet tempting) foods are lurking in every aisle, threatening to offset your nutritional goals. A well-thought-out grocery list can help you navigate the store with ease and stick to your menu. More than just a memory aid, a grocery list can lead to healthier food choices, minimize impulse buying, and save you time and money. Access your lists by selecting Shopping List on the Menu page.
Resources & LiveSmart
