Special Dietary Needs

Children with Special Dietary Needs in the School Nutrition Programs

Schools participating in a federal Child Nutrition Program are required to make accommodations for children who are unable to eat the school meals because of a disability that restricts their diet.  They may also, at their discretion, make substitutions for students who have special dietary needs but do not meet the definition of a disability. 

Forest City Regional's cafeteria does substitute Lactaid milk in place of fluid milk for students who are lactose intolerant.  Additional substitutions are made on a case-by-case basis for students who have other special dietary needs. The proper documentation (found below) must be submitted to the food service director's office before any substitutions are considered.  

Follow the link below for information and instructions along with the Medical Plan of Care for School Food Service form for both disabling and non-disabling special dietary needs.
