For the final project, you will propose a menu for one of two options:

1. a new food truck with a limited menu

2. a catered event

The proposed menu should have at least two items for at least four menu categories such as appetizer, soup or salad, main course, or dessert for example.  The menu items should be described as they would on a menu.

You will need to identify who the target market is and their nutritional expectations of the menu with at least one identified dietary restriction.  Possible restrictions may be vegan meals only, an allergy to nuts, or conform to regulations of kashrut as possible examples.

The proposal will provide a “side by side” comparison of two menu options in each category to show nutritional information, highlighting what is gained or lost when deciding between the two options

​The most beneficial group of choices from the menu (choosing one item from each category), which means assessing value of each item in relation to the other items, not individually

The impact of the meal on daily intake of macronutrients, vitamins, and minerals.

At least one concern related to fiber, monosaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats, saturated fat, cholesterol, sugar, or sodium

The effect of portion size on nutritional value

The value of the menu choices for the identified target market, even if that value is more indulgent based than health based.

At least one possible recipe change that would improve the nutritional benefit without compromising taste appeal

*You may use USDA Supertracker to review nutritional information or a nutritional analysis application of your choice.  Individual items may be checked by the instructor for accuracy.

**You may use MS Powerpoint to present the menu and use MS Word to submit the analysis.  If doing so, annotate which slide is being referred to in the writing. For example: On slide four, the comparison of the loaded baked potato and loaded mashed potato shows that…
