Using the Federal Dietary Guidelines MyPlate recommendations and in partnership with nutrition experts, we've created the first-of-its-kind tool to measure the healthfulness of menus in schools, hospitals, and other institutions.


The Balanced Menu Scorecard was designed to give community members and decision makers objective data and concrete action steps for improving the healthfulness of their menus.

To ensure accuracy and consistency as advocates score menus from across the country, we've created a guide to help you answer each question. Please use this guide as you complete the scoring survey. You can access a video tutorial for scoring menus here.

Interpreting the scores

Once you've scored your menu, contact our team for a custom assessment below. We will follow up with a complete Scorecard Report with recommendations for how to make a big impact on your community's health.

Thanks for reaching out! We will be in touch soon.
