Diet Accommodation Requests

  • Nutrition Services Special Diet Request Procedure

    The Mounds View Nutrition Services Department will provide a special diet for a student due to a medical authority verified diagnosis following our Special Diet Request Procedure:

    • In accordance with federal USDA regulations, the Special Diet Statement form to request dietary accommodations must be completed and signed by the parent/guardian as well as the child’s licensed physician before any accommodations are made. 
    • The special diet statement is a form which provides information about the student, the disability for which the diet must be modified, defines which foods are to be omitted and substituted and is signed by a licensed physician, physician assistant or advanced nurse practioner.
    • The Special Diet Statement  must be given to the School Health office and the Nutrition Services District Office. Please contact the Nutrition Service department at #651-621-6024 or email at nutritionservices@mvpschools.org to discuss the plan for your student.
    • Please be advised that the nutritional and ingredient information is general information and not intended to be used as medical advice. We make every effort to provide accurate information; however, we do not guarantee the accuracy of the nutritional or ingredient information.

    FAQs:

    What if my student can not drink cow's milk?

    The parent/ guardian can write a note and send it to the school kitchen manager or nurse, or email a note to nutritionservices@mvpschools.org to indicate their student would like the milk substitute, vanilla soymilk.

    What if my student has a tree nut/ peanut allergy?

    You do not need to request a special diet. The elementary menu does not have products that contain treenuts/peanuts. The secondary schools offer a packaged peanut butter and jelly sandwich on the lunch line.
