Students might not be able to eat a certain food or ingredient, or may need to eat or drink on a prescribed schedule. Providing dietary assistance can involve making ingredient lists and amounts available, providing a refrigerator in the studentâs room or access to a kitchen, guaranteeing allergen-free food options, providing allergy-free food activities in a class or allowing a student to eat or drink in class for disability related needs.
