Track Student Nutrition

Standard

The more I research the more I find technology everywhere.  I found a Facebook application called Lunchprepay.com that allows parents to monitor what their children are purchasing and eating at school.   Parents can  view the selected purchases, pre-pay for lunches, and access the planned menus.  This new application will allow parents to have better control over the junk food purchases. 

This application should also impact the student’s ability to function in class after lunch. Teachers can verify that a student’s lunch determines their ability to function in class in the afternoon.  With the Facebook application, teachers and parent could work together to assist specific students with hyper or sluggish behavior.  Some students may only eat junk for lunch while other may be overeating.  Lunchprepay provides a trackable nutrition plan for students and could be utilized to improve their learning ability in the classroom.
