• Nutritional Analysis
    A delicious and well-balanced breakfast and lunch is prepared fresh daily in your school's cafeteria. All meals are nutritionally analyzed and portions are set according to grade level. Fresh fruits and vegetables are included in the menus and all hot foods are either oven-baked or steamed to maintain the maximum amount of nutrients.
     
    Allergens
    Please note that peanut products are served in the cafeterias at the middle and high school levels. Please talk with your school about your concerns. Allergen and carbohydrate lists will be updated at the beginning of each school year.
    Some items on the menu in all schools may be processed
     in a facility that also processes nut products.  They are noted on the list by the item.

    Meal Substitutions for Medical Reasons

    If a child has a disability, as defined by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, CNP, School Nutrition Services will make substitutions or modifications in USDA meals for those children whose disabilities restrict their diets. A child with a disability will be provided substitutions when a School Nutrition Services Medical Meal Replacement form signed by a licensed physician supports that need.
     
    If the child has a disability, only a licensed physician can complete the form, deeming the child disabled. Meal substitutions must be included on the form by the physician. When the form is completed it should be sent to Brenda Wattles, RDN at the SNS office.  It can be sent by email to wattles.brenda@westada.org.
     
     

    Other Special Dietary Needs
    School Nutrition Services will make food substitutions whenever possible, within the guidelines of the USDA meal plan, for individual children who do not have a disability but who are medically certified as having a special medical or dietary need. Such determinations are only made on a case-by case basis and must be supported by a statement which specifies the requested food substitutions and is signed by a licensed medical authority such as physician, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, registered dietician or registered nurse.

    Forms must be reviewed each year, by the first day of school of the new school year, with the kitchen manager or nurse of each school. Parent must review and initial the form before it will be valid. Forms can be transferred to other schools within the school district by contacting the School Nutrition Services office.

    For children that are diagnosed as lactose intolerant, juice may be purchased at elementary schools for fifty cents each. Water is served in all cafeterias.
