Does anyone have a list of questions that babysitters should have info on. Like meds, approved and disapproved snacks, habits, allergies, etc?

I just got a new babysitter for my kids and she is a great girl! I just want to give her something that has as much info about my kids to her. She knows them well but I am sure there is stuff that she does not know and that I have forgotten to tell her.
