Special Dietary Needs

  •  

    Meal service to students with special dietary needs is provided to all school sites. Federal and State regulations require a completed and current diet prescription form for any type of change or substitution to the student's diet. The special diet prescription form will need to be completed by your child’s physician or medical authority. We will not process a special diet request for your child until we receive the 2020-2021 form. If you have questions regarding the form please contact the Child Nutrition Office at 985-785-3179.

    **PLEASE NOTE** If a student cannot have fluid milk due to a medical diagnosis, the Physician must prescribe the milk substitute on the Diet Prescription Form. The following milk substitutions are available: 4 oz juice, bottled water, and Lactaid

    For your convenience, the diet prescription form and nutritive values of food items that include carbohydrate counts are listed below.
