Looking for something on our website?
We have many resources and tools available on our website, but we have heard from some of you that it can be hard to find the information that you are looking for. Next time you are searching for something, try using our search bar by clicking on the magnifying glass (circled on the image below) on the right side of the menu bar on our home page. Type in what you are looking for, and ‘Enter’. You can search on terms such as ‘HEI’, ‘output’, or ‘sample recall procedures’.
NDSR 2019 is here!
We want to make sure that everyone knows that NDSR 2019 is now available! If your annual support is current as of July, the primary account holder at your institution should have received an email with a link to download the newest version of NDSR. If you haven’t already, we highly recommend upgrading to the NDSR 2019, as we have made program improvements and added new foods. For tips on upgrading, see our FAQ page and click on ‘Upgrading’. If you did not receive an email with an upgrade link, contact NDSRHelp@umn.edu.
Updated SAS code available for calculating HEI-2015 Scores
One of the program changes we made in NDSR 2019 affects the NCC Food Group Serving Count System. If you are calculating HEI-2015 Scores using data collected in or restored in NDSR 2019 or a subsequent version of the program, we recommend that you use the new SAS Code available on our website.
