  1. Click the Add Food button in the main window. You will see the Add Food window.
  2. Select a food from the Food Database or My Food Database.
  3. Click the Add Food to My Menu button, or drag the food from the list to My Menu, or right-click the food and select Add Food to My Menu.
  4. Enter the serving, then the quantity, and click OK.

Here are alternative ways to get to the Add Food window:

You will see this window:
    Copy to My Menu window
  2. On the calendar, select the day where you want to paste the food and click Paste.

Alternatively, to copy a food from My Menu to another day, you can use the Copy-Paste command.

When adding foods to My Menu, it may be more convenient to use the smaller My Food Database. For more information, see My Food Database.
