do they bring their own lunch, or do they eat the school lunch? does your school have special restrictions or cater to special diet or anything like that?
our school district is required to provide a special diet meal if the parents request it and they also require at least a half cup of fruit or vegetables to be on a tray for the kids to be able to get their hot lunch. there are lots of fruit and veggie options and the kids get to pick.
my daughter brings her own lunch. she has celiac disease and even thought the school is required to prepare something for her if we want them to, i just dont trust the prep behind it and everything would be careful enough for her to not get sick from a gluten cross contamination.she enjoys bringing her lunch. today she had a chocolate soy and raspberry preserve sandwich on gluten-free bread, baby carrots, a side of ranch for dipping, a fruitables juice box, and a colby jack cheese stick.
