REQUIRED: Medical Statement for Children with Special Dietary Needs
Each special dietary request must be supported by a statement explaining the requested food substitution and must be signed by a recognized medical authority. The Medical Statement must include:
• An identification of the medical or other special dietary condition which restricts the child’s diet;
• The food or foods to be omitted from the child’s diet; and
• The food or choice of foods to be substituted.
The medical statement must be written and signed by a recognized medical authority. Medical statements completed by parents or guardians will not be accepted.
Policy for Special Meal Accommodations & Food Allergies/ Disabilities
USDA Regulation 7 CFR Part 15b requires substitutions or modifications in school meals for children whose disabilities restrict their diets. A child with a disability must be provided substitutions in foods when that need is supported by a signed statement from a licensed physician. If a child requires a special meal accommodation due to a food allergy/intolerance and/or a diagnosed disability, it is the responsibility of the child’s parent/guardian to notify the School District’s Food and Nutrition Services Department of the child’s situation by submitting a completed Medical Statement to Request Meal Accommodations form (must be signed by a recognized medical authority). This form can be requested from the Food and Nutrition Department.
In Cases of Food Allergy
Generally, children with food allergies or intolerances do not have a disability as defined under either Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act or Part B of IDEA, and the school food service may, but is not required to, make food substitutions for them. However, when in the licensed physician’s assessment, food allergies may result in severe, life-threatening (anaphylactic) reactions, the child’s condition would meet the definition of “disability”, and the substitutions prescribed by the licensed physician must be made.
In case of severe allergies (i.e. food allergies considered a disability) please contact the Nutrition Services Department to discuss your options.
