All our programs are powered by the unique NMP menu planning system. Working with dietitans and caterers, we have developed this system to make your menu planning as simple and quick as possible.

Functionality
  • Each of our programs contains an extensive database of up to 1900 recipes designed for your population group and analysed by experienced dietitians
  • Instant nutritional analysis of menus, comparing the levels of up to 14 nutrients according to the standards for different population groups
  • Nutmeg's exclusive search and replace function which helps you to correct nutritional imbalances in the menu by suggesting replacement dishes from the same food category
  • The causes of any nutritional imbalance are highlighted on the menu
  • Cost and nutritional implications of dish changes can be seen before replacing
  • The ability to create combination dishes such as jacket potatoes, salads, sandwiches and pizzas
  • The ability to create menu cycles of up to eight weeks and cost and analyse whole cycles
  • Recipes for a menu or a cycle of menus can be exported to Word and edited into a recipe book for kitchens
  • Compatibility with catering procurement and school cashless systems
Costing Functions
  • Automatic shopping list showing quantity and cost of ingredients needed for a menu
  • Full cost analysis showing cost per meal, per day, per week or per cycle
  • Data on prices of ingredients can be imported automatically from third party procurement systems
  • Costs and nutrition data can be exported to Excel. Users can generate reports showing detailed analysis of the cost and nutritional breakdown of each item in the menu
  • The cost of a basket of ingredients can be recorded, so that users can demonstrate trends in the ingredient cost base of their menus over time
