Are your students eating a healthy diet?

‘The number of children who are obese is growing and has more than tripled in England over the past 25 years.

‘The number of children who are obese is growing and has more than tripled in England over the past 25 years. Worldwide, over 42 million children under five were overweight in 2013. If the current trends continue, the number of overweight or obese children will increase to 70 million by 2025.’’ – Bupa

Healthy eating and physical exercise is a major talking point in society and it is important to ensure that young people are educated in healthy eating.

MonitorIT’s Supervisor Net understands the importance of a healthy diet and has taken this into consideration when developing their software, Supervisor Net nutritional system.

With MonitorIT’s Supervisor Net nutritional system students, as well as parents can make informed choices on their menu based upon the nutritional information. The software contains features to assist in making the right choices when purchasing food items in the canteen.

The system is made up of several components - Monitor Online Ordering, Supervisor Administrator, My Monitor, Supervisor Insight and the Automatic Timed Import service. Some of these components are optional, but when added together the system provides a very rich set of features.

Parents can also keep informed using the software as its web based. Parents can see the food choices made through the school day, by logging onto the portal. The parent can also preselect from a menu for the day, week or month if required.

The software is simple to use as it works using a traffic light system. Each food product sold at the school will have red, amber or green circle to the left as well as detailing nutritional information.

Students can relate to this system easily and it helps when selecting good food choices. Their choices are reported using the iPOS tills in the canteen. Students swipe their MonitorIT smartcard. This is recorded and can be used for reporting for the school. These choices can also be seen by the student and the parent using the portal.

Warnings or preventions can also be set on certain foods. This can help with healthy eating but also can help if a student has specific requirements such as a food allergy.

Reports are included with MonitorIT’s nutritional system, Supervisor Insight for schools, to encourage healthy eating. Meaning the software does not only benefit the student and the parent but the school too. The school can report on exactly what their pupils are consuming.

Maybe it’s time your school and pupils starting benefiting from MonitorIT’s Supervisor Net nutritional system.
