Menu Planning Tools Approved for Certification for Six Cent Reimbursement

The following tools are approved by USDA for use in certification of compliance with the National School Lunch Program meal pattern requirements. This site is the official list of the only tools authorized to certify schools as eligible for the six cent reimbursement under the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act.

This list includes the USDA-developed Certification Worksheets and Prototype Attestation Statement, which school districts may use for both breakfast and lunch. Commercially available certification tools (software) will be listed here as they are approved by USDA for school lunch certification purposes.

Commercially available certification tools (software) will not be evaluated or approved for the breakfast meal pattern. State agencies may authorize the use of the breakfast functionality of software currently approved for certification of compliance with the National School Lunch Program meal pattern requirements.

For the nutrient analysis portion of the 1) six cent certification for lunch under Option 1 and 2) six cent certification for breakfast, the USDA-approved nutrient analysis software listed at this link may be used. Many of the software approved for use with certification of compliance are also approved for nutrient analysis.
