The Pennsylvania Department of Education, Division of Food and Nutrition, collaborated with the Pennsylvania Department of Health, Division of School Health, to provide a Special Dietary Needs Webinar Training for School Nurses and School Food Service Professionals.
The number of students being diagnosed with special dietary needs and food allergies increases each year. It is important that school nurses and food service directors understand the laws, regulations, and their respective responsibilities regarding students with special dietary needs. Although, the webinar targets school nurses and school food service professionals, other school staff involved with serving students with special dietary needs may want to view the webinar.
