Mom 2 Mom: Will School Help with Son’s Religious Dietary Restrictions?
This Article Brought To You By:
I apologize for the delay, but this question took a little extra digging. The consensus seems to be that PISD school cafeterias do not make any special accommodations for children who have food restrictions for religious purposes. They only accommodate children with medically necessary restrictions.
They did, however, say that you can get a menu specifying what food will be served each day, and you can instruct your child on what he can or cannot eat. Still, your best bet would be to pack your child’s lunch and instruct him to eat only what you pack. Also, make sure he isn’t bringing extra money to school to purchase cafeteria food. You could also talk to him about the importance of observing these rules and why you observe them. If he understands why, he will be more likely to follow them even when you are not around.
