The portion adjustments allow you to specify large, small, or double portions for any meal category desired. This adjustment is done based on menu category. Adjusting the portion size in this screen automatically forces the system to place the small, large, or double portion on the resident's tray ticket.
The system reads the small and large portion size for each item from the master items list. The double portion is always twice the normal portion size. To review the portion sizes, you can look at the Portion Variation Worksheet under the Master Items List section or to review a single item, choose the Master Item Information Screen.
