Here are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions we’ve received from districts in South Carolina. Click on the box to view the answer.
Is it really FREE?
Yes. The menu planning and analysis software, plus production module for each site has already been purchased for your district.
What do I have to purchase?
You do not have to purchase anything. You have access to everything you need to plan menus and populate online production records. There are optional modules that are completely integrated including online menus, mobile app, digital menu boards and a nutrition department website.
In addition, we know that it can be time consuming to switch or start on platforms so Health-e Pro’s Services Team (made up of Registered Dieticians, state reviewers and professional foodservice staff) can provide services to add your recipes, add your menus or completely manage your account.
Do I have to purchase a whole suite?
No. Health-e Pro will take care of all the menu side for FREE. You can still keep your same POS, applications and accounting software.
Can you “integrate” with my current software?
Health-e Pro does integrate with specific software providers to provide inventory, POS, and pre-ordering options. However, if your current provider offers menu planning software, they are not one of the integration partners.
How do I get started?
An account has already been created for every district. Contact Deidre at SCOHN and she will help you begin. You can log into your Canva account and choose the Health-e Pro lessons as well.
We also will have a “Start Up/Q&A Session” offered on

Meeting ID: 841 3498 5257
With school starting, how will I have enough time to get started?
Much of the work has already been done for you. There are some sample menus already created for you that you can copy to use in your own district. Or you can make some adjustments to them so they fit what you are offering.
Also, check out our global recipes for recipes that are already credited and able to be used. They were shared by some of your fellow directors from Greenville, Spartanburg 6, Dillon, Pickens, Lexington 1 and Charleston! Thanks to them, you can get in quickly with some great ideas!
Importantly, you can begin at any time. You do not have to wait for a specific time. Your account is ready and you can work in it with a goal to transition to full use sometime during the year.
I have an AR scheduled this year. How can I do this too?
The timing is great actually. Using your FREE Health-e Meal Planner and production will put all your needed menu documents in one place. If you enter that week’s menu, in 8 seconds after clicking the EZ Review, you will get the menu, USDA compliance worksheet, nutrient analysis, production records, recipes and CN labels and PFS for the week of review in a single PDF document. Want it to be easier? We can provide your reviewer with a read-only license to your system!
I still have questions!
Please ask us. We are committed to providing each program in South Carolina with a user-friendly, comprehensive tool that makes menu planning enjoyable and provides you information to easily monitor your program’s success.
