Manor ISD Food & Nutrition Services department is required by USDA to adhere to specific regulations to accommodate special diets for students.
Generally, children with food allergies or intolerances do not have a disability as defined in any of the Acts or Laws, and the school nutrition services may, but is not required to make food substitutions for them. However, when food allergies result in severe, life threatening reactions (those that can cause anaphylactic reactions), the child's condition would meet the definition of a "disability" and the substitutions prescribed by a recognized medical authority must be made.
If your child has a food allergy, you must notify the school of the allergy and provide written documentation from a licensed physician with the type of food allergy and the specific substitutions needed. All food allergy documentation must be updated yearly.
Note: Juice is not a substitution for milk unless the food allergy is defined as a disability.
For children who do not meet the definition of a disability or who do not have a food allergy or disease that is life threatening that requires alternate menu provisions, please see the provided food allergy lists on this page that identify food items that contain specific allergens.
The allergy lists should be used strictly as a resource guide only. It is not a guarantee of ingredients in all foods. Products stocked by Manor ISD can change due to supplier changes or substitutions. Manufacturers may also change formulation and ingredient profiles without the knowledge of Manor ISD Food and Nutrition Services Department. Parents are welcome to look at any ingredient label on food products at the school cafeteria.
