Allergies and Special Diets
Dietary restrictions requiring an alternative diet or substitution must be confirmed by a physician or medical authority. The diet order must list specific foods to be substituted. If there is a milk intolerance or allergy, we are able to provide an alternative milk substitution. Soy, Lactaid & Almond milk are all available upon physician’s orders. The USDA does not recognize juice or water as an allowable alternative to milk. The USDA states that a milk substitute must have the nutrient standards identified in the National School Breakfast and Lunch Program regulations.
