MRS Test Recipes

MRS was designed to serve foods popular with Mississippi students. It is also a way to introduce new foods into our menus. You and your staff can be part of the process by testing new recipes and returning your comments and suggestions. Please click here to visit the test page: https://mdek12.org/OCN/OP/MRS/MRS-Test-Recipes. The testing and evaluation of these recipes will help develop recipes that can be used in all our Mississippi Schools to provide the best meals for our Mississippi Child Nutrition Programs.

Ingredient and Recipe Updates

NEW: The May 2021 ingredient and recipe data file updates include ingredient changes due to new items on the order guide as well as corrections to errors that were found. As the MRS recipe file has grown, several categories of recipes no longer have sufficient unused numbers for adding additional recipes. To allow the inclusion of new recipes and to better group similar recipes together, all recipes in MRS recipes online and the MRS recipe database in Nutrikids® (NK) have new numbers. 

 

There are at least four unused numbers between each recipe number and unused numbers between different categories and subcategories. This will allow additional recipes to be added between existing recipes. The categories for recipes have stayed the same. Links to cross-reference files with the new numbers corresponding to recipes names in MRS online and the NK database are below.

 

All recipes have been reviewed and changes have been made for consistency. These include recipe directions, ingredients, ingredient measurements, crediting, and other areas. SFAs can import a data files of the recipes with the new numbers and the changes. Due to the large number of recipes, there are two data files for each region. Import both data files to ensure all recipes are included your version of NutriKids. Importing the renumbered recipe data files will not delete district recipes or menus.

There is also an option to import the entire revised database. Importing the new database will overwrite any local recipes or menus and the data will be deleted.    

Remember “.1” after a recipe number indicates that USDA Foods ingredients are used, “.2” is for recipes that have USDA Beef Crumbles, and “.3” for recipes that have DOD and Farm to School produce.
