Food Buying Guide - Interactive Web-Based Tool

USDA provides leadership on food, agriculture, natural resources, rural development, nutrition, and related issues based on public policy, the best available science, and effective management. The vision of the USDA’s Child Nutrition Program helps Americans through programs such as the National School Lunch Program; School Breakfast Program; Special Milk Program; Child and Adult Care Food Program; Summer Food Service Program; Team Nutrition; and Community Food Systems.

Simplifying the Process

The WebFirst O&M team is supporting the USDA’s Food Buying Guide, an interactive web-base tool, for USDA's Child Nutrition Program. The Food Buying Guide allows for easy searching, navigating, and displaying of nutritional information, whereby users can compare yield information, create a favorite foods list, and access tools. Examples Include:

  • The FBG Calculator
  • Exhibit A Grains Tool
  • Download Food Buying Guide
  • Recipe Analysis Workbook (RAW)
  • Product Formulation Statement (PFS) Workbook

WebFirst is currently updating yield tables and other content within the Web-based Interactive Food Buying Guide (FBG) and FBG Mobile App. We are also supporting the design layout of all components of the FBG resources, to ensure they are aesthetically pleasing and meticulously laid out. WebFirst ensures that all existing and new pages of the FBG Web Tool and their functionality are mobile-responsive and functioned successfully across all platforms (iOS, Android, and Windows) while meeting 508 compliance. We support Child Nutrition's mission of providing quality nutritional information to schools and lunch programs!
