What if my child needs a special diet?
I frequently get asked about providing special diets for students at school. It is possible to accommodate most special diets at school. In fact many students eat gluten free, dairy free, texture modified and carbohydrate controlled school meals every day. If a student medically requires a special diet the first step in the process is to have a doctor fill out the following form Diet Prescription. Next, we work on establishing a menu with foods that work within the special diet. For complex diets we work closely with the school nurse, dietitian, parents, student and teachers to best meet the student’s nutritional needs.
