Menus - Theme Days

When setting up Menus you can create a Theme menu for one day only, as opposed to the Lunch category which is used to set up a menu for all five weekdays

Important:  Menu templates for students with Dietary Requirements and Allergies remain active if a Theme day menu is applied to a site/area, making it possible for these students to keep their Special Menu items.  

 Go to Menus > Menus [1] > Theme Days [2] > right mouse click to select Add Theme Day [3]
