Allergies, Carb. Counts, & Special Diets

 

Below, you will find the allergen and carbohydrate content for many of our menu items.  This information is updated as menu changes occur, but may not fully represent the content of our menus or a la carte offerings.  For prepackaged a la carte items, the best source of information is the item’s nutrition information facts panel.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office at (281) 604-6950.

Our goal is to provide healthy, safe food to the students of LPISD.  In light of this, please be aware of the following important information:

Many manufacturers provide information annually regarding the allergen and carbohydrate content of their products.  Some update their information less frequently.  Do not assume that the allergen/carbohydrate information accurately represents the nutrient content of a meal or food item.  Additionally, our distributors may substitute items as needed.  Substitutions will occur without notice and may contain different allergens and carbohydrate content than the regular product.  The school nutrition department cannot be responsible for ensuring that a child’s meal is free of allergens.  Students with life-threatening allergies are encouraged to bring meals from home.

Students with life threatening food allergies or disabilities requiring approved diet modifications may have an alert posted in the cafeteria point of sale (cash register).

Your school nutrition department is fully committed to ensuring that your child has access to medically necessary meal accommodations.  We will work with parents and medical authorities to find a solution.  If you are unsatisfied in any way with our response to a meal accommodation request, you are encouraged to contact our office at (281) 604-6950 and/or take any of the following actions:  File a grievance if you believe a violation has occurred regarding the request for a reasonable modification, receive a prompt and equitable resolution of the grievance, request and participate in an impartial hearing to resolve their grievances, be represented by legal counsel at the hearing, and/or examine the record.  We have the duty, honor, and privilege of collaborating with parents and guardians to provide access to safe meals and we look forward to working with you.
