Food Allergy and Dietary Restrictions

There will be a plan to accommodate and ensure the safety of children who have food allergies and other dietary restrictions. If a child requires a special diet due to a medical reason, the staff member will provide the “Food Substitution Physician’s Statement”. They will assure that the required medical authority’s signature is collected.


The medical statement must specify:
• The participant’s disability or medical condition
• The foods to be omitted
• Suggested substitutions and or accommodations

The medical statement must be signed by:
• A physician for participants with a disability
• A physician, physician’s assistant or registered nurse for non-disabled participant.
