Administrator - Adding Choosi Combos to a Base Menu or to the Menu Calendar

After Choosi combos (meals and MTO's) have been configured, they are ready to be added to the menu worksheet of either a base menu or a menu on the menu calendar. The instructions below assume the combo has already been configured and the weekly menu/base menu has been created. 

  1. Click the blue plus sign button on the bottom right hand side of your daily menu worksheet screen and click to "Add a Choosi Combo" to your menu (make sure you are on the correct day of the week that you'd like to add this combo to)
  2. From the pop-out window, type in the name of the Choosi Combo you’d like to add to this daily menu. CNCentral will search your database of Choosi Combos and return results based on keyword as you type. When the correct combo meal is located, click on it.
  3. The Choosi Combo nutrient and component information will pre-populate. Enter your planned number of servings and select to "Save & Close", "Save & Continue", or "Save & Create New".
    1. Save & Continue – Saves your Combo information and takes you to a detail page where you can add addition information for this Combo
    2. Save & Close – Saves your Combo to your menu and closes out the pop-out window
    3. Save & Create New – Saves your Combo to your menu and clears the pop-out window for a new Combo or item to be entered
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for each Choosi Combo you’d like to enter for this day of the week
  5. Add Milks to your daily menu by clicking on the blue plus sign button on the bottom right hand side of your screen and clicking to "Add New Item"
  6. From the pop-out window, type in the name of the milk you’d like to add to this menu for this day. CNCentral will return results based on keyword as you type. When the correct milk meal is located, click on it
  7. The milk nutrient and component information will pre-populate. Enter your planned number of servings and select this item as a Side item. Save the milk to your menu by choosing to "Save & Close", "Save & Continue", or "Save & Create New"
    • Save & Continue – Saves your item information and takes you to a detail page where you can add addition information for this item
    • Save & Close – Saves your item to your menu and closes out the pop-out window
    • Save & Create New – Saves your item to your menu and clears the pop-out window for a new item to be entered
  8. Repeat steps 5-7 for each milk you’d like to enter for this day of the week.
  9. Click to the next day of the week and repeat steps 1-8 to add all of your Combos for each day of the week.

Tip: CNCentral has a Copy & Paste option which can be used to copy one menu day into another menu day if you serve the same items each day of the week.
