If your child has been identified as having a disability and has special dietary needs, changes can be made to your child’s school breakfast and/or lunch at no extra charge with the proper written medical statement from your physician.
A child with a disability will receive the necessary food substitutions if their dietary requirements are supported with a statement signed by a licensed physician. The physician’s statement must identify:
- The child’s disability
- An explanation of why the disability restricts the child’s diet
- The major life activity affected by the disability
- The food or foods to be omitted from the child’s diet and the food or choice of foods that must be substituted
