How to Assign Crediting to Items that Can Contribute to Multiple Components

CNCentral allows menu planners the ability to choose the component an item credits towards if it can credit towards more than one component. An example of this would be pinto beans that can credit as a M/MA or as a Veg Beans/Peas. Another example would be a breakfast protein that can credit as a M/MA - Grain or a M/MA - Extra. 

To designate an item as the correct component:
