The Nutrient Analysis Protocols: How to Analyze Menus for USDA’s School Meals Programs (NAP Manual) is a technical assistance resource for school nutrition or state agency professionals.
This manual provides guidance for the calculation of nutrient analyses of school menus, which allow the school and state agency to provide documentation that the school is meeting the dietary specifications for National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program.
The goal of the NAP Manual is to provide technical guidance the user needs to obtain an accurate nutrient analysis using their software. The NAP Manual is divided into seven chapters and includes a glossary and resource list.
