Food and Nutrition Information
Carbohydrates & Allergen Charts
Below are charts with menu item carbohydrate counts and common food allergens found in the foods served in our elementary and secondary breakfast and lunch. Please be aware that product reformulation may occur at any time, and may not be made known to the Child Nutrition Department. In addition, distributors may make food substituitons at any time without notice which may contain unexpected allergens.
Does your child have a food allergy? Students with food allergies may have an alert posted in the cafeteria point of sale by having a medical authority complete the form below. Please ensure that the information is complete and correct before turning it in to the nurse at your child's school. Please also note that turning in this form will restrict all foods containing the allergens listed when the student eats in the cafeteria. This form is not necessary for students who have mild food allergies or intolerances unless those ingredients need to be completely restricted from the child's diet. Lactaid milk is made available at every meal.
Information on preventing student purchases of meals
The Child Nutrition Department will only honor requests preventing student purchases of meals or ala carte items.
A new form must be turned in each school year. If you have applied and your child is eligible for free and reduced meals, a request to block meals will not be honored without first discussing it with the Child Nutrition Office - please call 281-891-6445. Please note that this does not apply to restrictions or substitutions required due to life threatening allergies or disabilities that have been documented by a Physician on the Diet Modification Form listed below.
