Automated menu planning for Nursing homes

80% to 100% of patients in long term care homes rely completely on food provided by the kitchen team and catering service for their nutritional support. Providing choice, flexibility and nutritionally appropriate menu options starts with Menutech.

Diverse and healthy menus

Diverse and healthy menus

Control your dietary management by letting Menutech seamlessly calculate the nutritional composition of diaries and track your patients’ dietary intake against reference values, so you don’t have to. You can also see if your offering follows a five-a-day diet and if each meal includes at least two bread, cereal, or carbohydrate products.

Menus for special dietary requirements

You can independently create and manage diets, dietary breakdowns and automated restrictions: menu options are then automatically filtered based on your clients' dietary restrictions.

Customisable menu templates

The fastest way to prepare menus for your Long term care home

A menu is a live document: Menutech helps you review and update menus regularly in order to continue to meet the dietary needs of your residents.

Automated resident menu design and export

  • Plan your weekly meal offering with Menutech’s easy-to-use online software including automated allergen declaration.
  • Analyse the diversity of your meal offering: Menutech alerts you if meals repeat themselves during the week and if free-from options are missing.
  • Set up meal allocation rules to generate resident menus (e.g. “Resident A receives Gluten-free options only” or “Resident B receives meal options under 200 kcal only”).

Recipe management and cost optimisation

  • Quickly add and edit dishes and beverages in your personal database. All changes are synchronised across all menus and displayed in real time.
  • Enjoy access to our public database of 16,000+ dish translations and 5,000+ dishes with declared allergens.
  • Manage ingredients and recipes for your dishes and generate recipe books in a single click. All your food information is centrally available for your residents and medical staff.
  • Optimise the costs of your recipes (incl. setting your total budget per resident per day/week), reach target nutritional values and analyse the diversity of your meal offering to maximise resident satisfaction and profitability.

Electronic Meal Order System (sMOS) for your patients, dieticians, nurses and chefs

  • Add the number of orders per meal option: half the time it takes to collect orders and get a full overview of your most popular dishes through time.
  • Export a summary of orders for the kitchen staff: all orders are grouped per day, per option and per comment (e.g. “Lemon butter salmon with potatoes and vegetables: 15 standard recipe, 3 without salt, 2 half fish portion, 1 without potatoes”).
  • Export place cards for the restaurant: Add your resident name and meal options on automatically generated place cards. You can prepare custom designs for special events (e.g. birthdays).

Take your Long term care home’s menu planning to the next level:

Centrally manage your residents dietary preferences

and add comments of your choice (e.g. “Salt-free diet”, “Fish and meat: always half portion”) that will be written on your menus and summarised for your Kitchen team.

Create privilege access

to certain aspects of the menu writing process. For example, translators can’t modify meal options and chefs cannot change the style of menus.

Set up tests to get quick answers

Calculate the highest and lowest energy content of food choices for the midday and evening meals for a sample of random days over the menu cycle. You can also check if your offering follows a five-a-day diet, and if at least two bread / cereal / starch items are offered for each meal.

Fully customisable Electronic Meal Order System (eMOS)

Order-taking can be activated or de-activated at the click of a button. The latest menus of your choice are displayed to your residents, without having to re-upload PDF files or re-enter URL links. For example, you can set up the rule that every Sunday at 5PM, the menu of the next Monday is shown. Set deadlines for orders, so that your Kitchen team has a clear overview of the order quantities before service hours.
