Updating and Saving in Minute Menu CX

Updating Minute Menu CX

Saving information in Minute Menu CX

To auto-hide your task bar:

  1. Right click on any blank space in your task bar
  2. Select Properties
  3. On the next screen, check the box for “Auto-hide the task bar”
  4. Click “OK” to save

Then you will be able to see the Save button hidden behind the task bar.

What will Monday morning look like for users of Minute Menu CX?

In an effort to make day 1 of the new meal pattern changes as painless as possible for centers, there will be no new version to download on that day.  The new version can be downloaded on Friday, so that it’s ready to go Monday morning. Here is what the timeline will look like:

Thursday night, September 28th. There will be a mandatory release of CX (version 14.0)  that will contain all of the changes for the new meal pattern. Minute Menu CX users will update on Friday morning.

Sunday morning, October 1st.  We will switch all users over to the new pattern, convert the menus, and then stop all open sessions so that all users will log in fresh Monday morning.

Monday morning, October 2nd.  All users will log in and see all of the new changes without the need to spend any time updating.

Are your centers curious about what the new meal pattern changes will look like? Please click here to view/download a 2 page PDF describing the main changes to the center side of the Minute Menu CX program. Feel free to print, email, and share this with your centers!

Copying menus. What Centers and Center Sponsors need to know before Oct. 1st.

 

Copy. And Paste. But do it now.

Copy and paste any menus that you plan to reuse (such as cycle menus or seasonal menus) to future months now, while you still can. Those menus will be merged into the new meal pattern on Oct. 1st.

Copying and pasting from the old meal pattern to the new meal pattern will NOT be available after Oct. 1st.

Starting on Oct. 1st, it will not be possible to copy and paste menus from prior months. On Oct. 1st, center accounts will be converted to the new meal pattern. Menus made on the new meal pattern can be copied and pasted to future months.

Menus on the old meal pattern cannot be copied and pasted to the new meal pattern, after October 1st.

Review.

Review scheduled menus to make sure that they meet the new meal pattern requirements.

Make sure that…

  • Juice is planned for no more than once per day.
  • There is a vegetable at each lunch and dinner.
  • A whole grain-rich food is planned at least once per day.
  • Grain based desserts have been removed.

Mark your calendar for Oct. 1st to check for missing components by looking for lowercase letters on the Menu Calendar screen.

Some meals may lose components during the merge process (such as lunches and dinners that had 2 fruits, 1 fruit will be lost during the merge process). On Oct. 1st or after, check the Menu Calendar screen. Any scheduled menu that is missing a component will be listed with a lowercase letter (balpde). These are most likely lunches and dinners that included 2 fruits OR food items that are no longer approved (such as grain based desserts).
