MEDICAL STATEMENT

 

FOOD ALLERGIES
The SUHSD Food Services department does not operate allergen-free kitchens, and foods may or may not contain any of the 8 MAJOR ALLERGENS. For additional information on the the 8 MAJOR ALLERGENS click the MAJOR ALLERGENS button on the left hand side of the page.

FOOD INTOLERANCES/PREFERENCES/RELIGIOUS REQUIREMENTS
The SUHSD Food Services Department understands that students may not only have particular food preferences but also specific food intolerances and religious requirements. We strive to ensure a variety of foods are offered during meal times so that as many options as possible are given to our student body. A variety of meats, vegetarian options, fruits and vegetables are offered daily during meal times.

MEAL SUBSTITUTIONS FOR MEDICAL OR DIETARY REASONS
Each special dietary request must be supported by a statement explaining the requested food substitution and must be signed by a recognized medical authority. Click the NSLP button on the left hand side for more details. The Medical Statement must include:

  • Describe the physical or mental impairment sufficiently in order for the SFA to understand how it restricts a child’s diet
  • Explain what must be done to accommodate a child’s disability
  • Identify food or foods to be omitted from a child's diet
  • Recommend food or choice of foods that must be substituted in a child's meals
