For those students with food allergies, we cannot guarantee our food does not contain potential allergens not listed on food labels. While we do our very best to check ingredient statements, product formulations do change. Please call if your student has life threatening allergies and is eating school lunch. For those with peanut and tree nut allergies, we do not process peanut products in any of our kitchens. The peanut butter and jelly Uncrustables on the menu come in fully packaged, so cross contamination should not be an issue. The granola we use in the yogurt & granola daily choice does not have peanuts or tree nuts listed in the ingredient label. However, please be aware that the manufacturer's label does indicate "Granola may contain peanut, almond & pecan ingredients!" This is due to possible cross-contamination during the processing of the granola. The website for the product we use, Nature Valley Oats 'N Honey is http://www.naturevalley.com/Snack-Bars/OatsNHoney. Any pork-containing product is marked with an *. If it is not marked, the product is most likely a turkey product.
To ensure that no student has an allergic reaction, it is imperative that an allergy form be filled out prior to the start of the school year and given to your student’s school nurse. Student Nutrition Services works with each school’s nursing staff to get all student’s allergy information. This information is inputted in our computer system and the students are flagged in the system so that we can ensure no student goes through the meal lines with a food item that can negatively affect their allergy.
Please contact student nutrition services if you have questions or need clarification. Phone: 937-433-8841 ext. 2015
