Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. All meals, foods and beverages are prepared and served by qualified child nutrition professionals. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
Common food allergens found in foods served on Katy ISD menus are identified on the attached chart. Charts are updated periodically as new information is received. Product reformulation may occur at any time and may not be known by the Nutrition and Food Services Department. In addition, substitute products may be delivered due to product availability. The Nutrition and Food Services Department cannot be responsible for insuring that a child’s menu selections are free from allergens. Visit the department's Allergen Information page for information regarding student food allergies. Please also click our Allergen Information List for more vital information below.
