What software does your school use?
Having used various forms of nutritional analysis software I feel I have enough experience to say that they are all very similar and will produce very similar results. However, some are definitely more user friendly. The two I have most experience with are FOOD4PC and Food In Focus 2. Food in focus 2 is a custom made piece of software and is far easier for students to use. It does have significant limitations i.e. the lack of ability to print exactly the information you want, but a print screen workaround makes this reasonably easy to accomplish.
