  2. 2. Nutrition for Food Service Operation• Nutrition and Food Issues are Huge• Two-thirds of Americans are overweight.• 48 million fall ill to pathogens in food annually.• 12.6 million dont have enough food to stay healthy. Hotel Management Program
  3. 3. Nutrition: The Science of Food• Nutrition: the study of nutrients in food, how the body uses nutrients, and the relationship between diet, health and disease. Major food manufacturers employ nutritionists and food scientists. Nutritionists may also work in journalism, education and research. Many nutritionists work in the field of food science and technology. Hotel Management Program
  4. 4. The human body requires seven major types of nutrients A nutrient is a source of nourishment, an ingredient in a food, e.g. protein, carbohydrate, fat, vitamin, mineral, fiber and water. Macronutrients are nutrients we need in relatively large quantities. Micronutrients are nutrients we need in relatively small quantities. Hotel Management Program
  5. 5. Marine Ecosystems in Danger From Climate ChangeClimate change is projected to shrink thebody weight of marine fishes by 14 to 24%globally by 2050, according to a recent studyfrom The University of British Columbia. Theresults of the study provide a newunderstanding of climate change’s impact onmarine ecosystems.
  6. 6. • Indeed, changes in temperature and oxygen content directly affect the ecophysiology (the adaptation of an organism’s functions to environmental conditions) of marine water- breathing organisms and lead to a reduction in both individual and assemblage-level body size.

  9. 9. Contemporary Dietary Concerns • Images If youve ever combed the supermarket for affordable, quality, nutritious foods, you know how difficult it can be. With rising food costs, the need for convenience and the frequent inability to read and understand ingredients lists, you may end up with a basket full of unhealthy foods. However, even with these challenges, six in 10 Americans consider nutrition "very important," according to a recent poll by the American Dietetic Association. Though the number of people concerned about nutrition has increased in the past few decades, life-threatening, diet-related problems like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, digestive conditions and obesity plague the population. issues-insights/#ixzz2AjyGlEEGHotel Management
  10. 10. - Economy The ADA reports that over half of those polled believe "organic"foods to be healthier. This, however, may not be enough forAmericans to purchase them regularly, as "sticker shock" fromcommon organic products has some wondering if they are worth it,reports the New York Times.Rising fuel costs, higher demand, supply shortages and productioncosts are all contemporary factors contributing to the price increasesfor both organically produced and standard foods. Hotel Management Program
  11. 11. Fast Food CultureIn 30 years, the number of hours worked by Americanshas increased by 20 percent, states the Journal of theAmerican College of Nutrition. With dwindling time,families find the "fast food" meal more convenient and,in some cases, less expensive than traditional homecooking. Hotel Management Program
  12. 12. More than 90 percent of Americans know thatinformation, but less than half have heard aboutprobiotics and allergen-free foods. seven out of 10 Americans dying from chronicdisease these days, solutions are being addressed byorganizations like the Centers for Disease Control andPrevention and the ADA. Hotel Management Program
  13. 13. •Future TrendsRecent research shows a trend toward group wellnesscoaching. Wellness coaching can not only improve healthfor individuals but may "leverage change" in the overallpopulation Hotel Management Program
  14. 14. Contemporary Diet and Concerns• Portion Sizes Some of the most startling evidence of the changes in contemporary diet lie in portion sizes. The typical portion size for a hamburger increased up to 223 percent from the 3.9 oz. burger in 1954. Portion sizes for an order of french fries increased nearly 200 percent from 1955 figures. These two examples point to a possible change in nutritional intake. With increased size of hamburgers and french fries comes a greater saturated fat intake. Over-consumption of saturated fats can increase your risk of developing atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries. Hotel Management Program nutrition/#ixzz2Ak6iqGwM
  15. 15. • Added Sugars• Americans passion for sweets is reflected in the amount of added sugars the average person consumes. The "Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010" estimates that added sugars make up 16 percent of the current American diet, far higher than the recommended 10 percent. High consumption of added sugars can lead to weight gain and poor nutrition. Sugar consumption, like fat or cholesterol, can become addictive. This consequence has fueled the food industry as it tries to satisfy the American sweet tooth.• nutrition/#ixzz2Ak7DEZ00 Hotel Management Program
  16. 16. Fast Food Consumption• Another trend affecting diet and nutrition is fast food consumption. A 2003 study by Columbia University and the Obesity Research Center at St Lukes-Roosevelt Hospital in New York found that restaurant food consumption by children ages 6 to 11 increased almost 300 percent between 1977 and 1996. Its hard to deny the convenience that fast food offers.• nutrition/#ixzz2Ak7hDq1Q Hotel Management Program
  17. 17. Sodium Intake• The increased intake of prepared foods along with processed foods has brought about another change in the contemporary diet that might affect future cases of high blood pressure, or hypertension. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns that the American diet contains far too much salt. Americans consume more than 3,400 mg of sodium each day, well more than the recommended 2,300 mg intake. With the increase in sodium comes a heightened risk for heart disease and high blood pressure. These trends might lead to changes in life expectancy for future generations.• nutrition/#ixzz2Ak8ApUV4 Hotel Management Program

  23. 23. The Psychology of Menu Design• The menu is the most important internal marketing and sales tool a restaurant has to market its food and beverage to customers. It is the only piece of printed advertising that you are virtually 100 percent sure will be read by the guest. Once placed in the guest’s hand, it can directly influence not only what they will order, but ultimately how much they will spend. Menu design directly influences sales revenue.

  31. 31. Menu pricesIf they are too high; Sales SufferIf they are too low; Profits Suffer Hotel Management Program
  32. 32. Menu Prices1. Be directly related to costs2. Help product profitability3. Serve as a cost control tool4. Refresh realistic markups (the difference between a menu item’s cost and selling price) Hotel Management Program
  33. 33. Maximum allowable food costThe maximum allowable food cost figure determines thefood cost percentage an operation needs in order toachieve its profit objectives. It is calculated from theactual operating budget of the business.To calculate the maximum allowable food costpercentage, select a representative accounting periodand determine the amounts for:• payroll related expenses (salaries, wages, taxes, andfringe benefit)• overhead expenses (advertising, utilities,maintenance, other supplies excluding food costs).• Also include a target figure for profits before tax. Hotel Management Program
  34. 34. Actual Food CostThe actual food cost percentage appears onthe monthly income statement. This is the costof the food consumed by your customers, anddoes not include employee meals or spoilage.Although the actual food cost indicates whatthe food cost is currently running, it has littlevalue unless the operator knows what thetarget percentage should be. Hotel Management Program
  35. 35. Potential food costPotential food cost is a theoretical or ideal percentagewhich indicates what the food cost should be in aperfectly run restaurant, given the sales mix. It reflectsthe fact that the most popular menu items will have thegreatest influence on the overall food cost percentage.To calculate the food cost percentage of each dish:• Multiply the food cost per item with the number ofportions sold• Multiply the sales price by the number of portions sold• Add both columns and then multiply the total cost by100 and divide it by the total of the sales column.This will result in the potential food cost. Hotel Management Program
  36. 36. Standard food costManagement needs to adjust the potential food cost toinclude waste and spoilage that occurs during normalpreparation, as well as an allowance for complimentaryor discounted meals to employees and guests. Anacceptable variance will range from half to threepercentage points of food sales.The exact percentage is determined from managementstudies. The standard food cost percentage iscalculated by adding this variance percentage to thepotential food cost. Hotel Management Program difference between actual food cost and standardfood cost reflects inefficiencies that should have beencontrolled by management.
  37. 37. Standard recipes for beverages• Standard recipes must be established for each drink.It is straight forward for the basic types of liquor served, since a recipe is a standard portion. It is important for the staff to be familiarized. RequisitionsSome establishments use the daily requisitions, costed and totaled as a basis of calculating a daily beverage cost Hotel Management Program
  38. 38. Measuring devices• Two measuring devices are the shot glasses and jiggers.• The shot glass is generally used for the basic highball drink that the establishment serves.• The jiggers is usually of stainless steel and measures smaller quantities of ingredients Hotel Management Program
  39. 39. Establishing Drink Selling prices• Consider gross profit in pricing drinks• Drink selling prices are established to yield on overhaul desired beverage cost percent, in the same way as food- menu prices. Hotel Management Program
  40. 40. Interbar Transfer• In establishments with several bars, it is sometimes necessary to transfer beverages from one bar to another. Spillage Allowance Some establishments permit spillage allowance. This allowance aknowledges that it is not practical to expect that the liquor from a bottle can be accounted for down to the last drop. Hotel Management Program
  41. 41. Common Menu Pricing Methods •Your restaurant concept, that is, the type of food, service and ambiencehas a lot to do with the different challenges a restaurant owner might facewhen pricing menu items.Ideal Food Cost Pricing MethodThis method calls for an owner to consider the actual cost of a menu item,then consider his or her ideal food cost percentage. Ideal food costpercentage varies, but typically lies somewhere between 25 and 30 percent.The two are divided and voila, you have a menu item price. See the examplebelow: Hotel Management Program
