New LAUSD App Allows Parents To Track What Their Kids Eat At School!

STUDIO CITY (KCAL9) — Do you wonder what your kids spend their lunch money on?

LAUSD Deputy Director of Food Services Laura Benavidez and Jazmin Sandoval from Francis Polytechnic High School stopped by KCAL9 Thursday to tell viewers about a new app that allows parents to do a daily check of what their children are eating at school, including the nutritional value of each item.

The app, which is the first in the country, allows parents to also apply for free and reduced meals.

In celebration of National School Breakfast Week, LAUSD launched a Student Breakfast Recipe Contest open to all students through Mar. 29.

The winning student will win $500 and the recipe will inspire a new breakfast item on the 2013-2014 cafeteria menu.

The 10 finalists will each receive $100 and have their recipes featured in an online “I’M IN” Breakfast Recipe Booklet.
