Menu, Nutrition and Allergen Information

We are proud to be able to provide students, parents, and community partners with information that will allow our students to make educated choices regarding their school meals. The information provided is based on current information from manufacturers and San Diego Unified recipes.

Please be aware that there are factors that may effect a product's actual nutritional value and/or ingredient composition at any given time -- a cafeteria may make a dietitian-approved menu substitution; manufacturers' formulations may change without notice; USDA products may become available at any time during the year and may replace a purchased item; product brands may change during the year as new bids are approved; schools may be using inventory from a previous bid or manufacturer; and recipes may change during the school year.

Special Diets

If your child requires a special diet provided daily by the school cafeteria, a prescription written in English by a U.S. licensed physician indicating the medical necessity must be sent to San Diego Unified. All special diet requests must be filled out in English and signed by a U.S. licensed physician, physician's assistant, or nurse practitioner. If a student changes schools, Food and Nutrition Services must be notified. Please be sure that all forms are filled out in their entirety before sending to Food and Nutrition Services to ensure special diets are written and implemented in a timely manner. Special meal accommodations and milk substitution requests must be turned in every school year, they do not roll over from the previous school year.

To request a milk substitution due to a medical or other special dietary need, a parent or guardian can complete the "parental request for a fluid milk substitution for school-age children" form (provided below). Please note this form is not intended to accommodate students who drink fluid milk substitutions such as soy milk due to taste preference. Send all forms/prescriptions directly to Mary Tyranski, San Diego Unified Dietitian via fax (858) 565-6378 or e-mail mtyranski@sandi.net.
