Take the hard work and guesswork out of nutrition control. The nutritional value of the meals you serve is so important, you can’t afford to take chances.
However, achieving the correct balance can be challenging, involving time consuming maths to calculate calories, fats, salt, carbohydrates and other nutritional constituents – a difficult task in the busy kitchen. Or resorting to best-guessing – involving a high degree of risk to both your residents and your establishment.
K2N takes both the hard work and guesswork out of achieving the correct nutritional values of every meal you serve. It is an easy-to-use online tool that you can access securely from any computer using a unique username and password.
Using simple point-and-click operation, K2N makes it easy to:
- Determine the nutritional content of the food you serve
- Ensure at a glance that what you’re serving meets the personal nutritional needs of your residents
- Ensure you have the correct quantities of the correct ingredients
Wide range of recipes and ingredients
K2N comes with a database of hundreds of tempting recipes and over 4,000 ingredients, analysed to 33 nutritional components, in addition to sample menu plans.
