Nutrition Software for Hospitals
MenuSano nutrition analysis software allows food providers within hospitals to display nutrition information to customers at the point of sale. With MenuSano, hospitals are able to demonstrate the importance of nutrition to its staff, patients, and visitors.
Healthy Eating in Healthcare Settings
MenuSano provides healthy eating options in healthcare settings. Furthermore, MenuSano empowers consumers to understand the content of their food and make healthier eating choices for themselves.
Even the most health-conscious people can make less healthy decisions when they’re tired, stressed, and worried. These are common states of mind for staff, patients, and visitors in hospital settings. When someone wants to grab a quick snack in between their loved one is getting medical procedures, they often pick the fastest option, which is usually the unhealthy one. Nutrition, at this time, isn’t always top-of-mind. However, it should always be available.

Healthy Foods in Champlain Hospitals is a priority program driven by the Champlain Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Network (CCPN). Nutritious food needs to be easily accessible and hospitals are an opportune place to start.
“Nowhere is healthy eating more critical than in a hospital setting. Patients recovering from illness or surgery need good nutritious food to recover quickly and return home. If hospitals are serving patients unhealthy meals or encourage retailers on hospital campuses to sell unhealthy foods, it can add to the public’s confusion about what eating “healthy” really means.”
