Ratings and Reviews
Great idea, little less great execution
Loved the idea of being able to check the menu at home and talking about what options to choose to avoid certain things.
The menu is not readable on a regular iPhone, only on iPad or computer. From other reviews this looks like an old issue that has not yet been fixed.
It would be amazing if the app + menu would clearly state which category cuisine a dish falls under. Like it’s often seen at good restaurants using little indicators next to dishes to distinguish them: vegan (Vg) / vegetarian (V) / kosher (K) / nuts (nut) / meat (meat) / dairy (dairy) etc. This would make it so much more manageable for many people.
See into the future?
I haven’t found a way to look at the next month’s menu ahead of time. It would be nice if we could see at least the first week of the next month to plan ahead.
I also agree that the print is difficult to read.
I also have two children in different schools and cannot log in as both.
It is very helpful to find summer meals and also to quickly see what the kids might have for lunch (as long as it isn’t the first of the month.)
Needs a lot of work!
I noticed that the issue about the small print reported a year ago was not fixed. Also, I was able to add only one student (I have two children attending a PS). I suggest the menus are not uploaded as an image but entered into the system to prevent the text from being too small and difficult to read.
