Along with all the hours students spend in the classroom each year, they also spend an average of 93 hours somewhere they might enjoy even more — the cafeteria.

What are your kids eating at school?

A new app aims to keep you informed.

Mobile technology is serving up the menu this year at a South Carolina high school.

Chartwells is a school dining service that serves hundreds of schools across the country. It has teamed up with Nutrislice to give paper menus a makeover.

"Now we have the ability to take all those recipes and knowledge and nutritional information and to really then put it in the hands of students and parents," said Chartwells President Rhonna Cass. 

The app provides ingredient lists, nutritional analysis and even a photo of all the menu items. It's an option for students and parents to track lunchtime nutritional choices even after the final bell.

More than 3,000 schools nationwide can use Nutrislice, including several in Indianapolis.
