USDA Approved Nutrient Analysis Software

This information is provided to assist state agencies, school food authorities, and local schools with the selection of a software program that has been USDA-approved for nutrient analyses required in the school meal programs.

Only USDA-approved nutrient analysis software may be used to conduct nutrient analyses for an Administrative Review. Software approved by USDA for nutrient analysis may also be used for:

  • nutrient analysis portion of certification for the additional performance-based reimbursement (certification of compliance) for lunch;

  • nutrient analysis portion of certification for the additional performance-based reimbursement (certification of compliance) for breakfast; and

  • nutrient analysis of recipes to ensure compliance with the Smart Snacks in School standards.

Note that only nutrient analysis software approved by USDA are considered an allowable cost to the non-profit school food service account. For certification for the additional performance-based reimbursement for lunch, the USDA-approved menu planning software listed here may be used. Many of the software approved for nutrient analysis are also approved for menu planning (certification of compliance).
