Special Dietary Needs

Special Dietary Needs 

Students that require special dietary needs can range from lactose intolerance to severe food allergies.  Below are steps you can follow to ensure your child's needs are being met through the National School Breakfast and Lunch programs at your child's school.

Lactose Intolerance:

What is needed?  A physicians statement indicating your child is lactose intolerant and requires a Johnston County Schools Child Nutrition Services approved substitute.

Food Allergies (peanut, milk, wheat, fish, shellfish, soy, treenut, egg):

What is needed?  If your child has a food allergy, it is best to have a medical statement on file with the registered dietitian in Child Nutrition Services.  You may download this form from this page.  Please read all the instructions carefully. 

Religious or Non-Religious Food Preferences:

What is needed?  If you are vegetarian or have other food preferences, Child Nutrition Services may provide substitutions for your child based on availability.  These substitutions will be made on a case-by-case basis and may not be awarded to all that request dietary modifications.  You will need to call Child Nutrition Services for more information.

Food Intolerances:

What is needed?  If your child has an intolerance to food such as MSG, Child Nutrition Services may provide a substitution for your child based on availability.  These substitutions will be made on a case-by-case basis and may not be awarded to all that request dietary modifications.  You will need to call Child Nutrition Services for more information.
