Food Allergies in Schools

Schools have a legal requirement to support children who may have a food allergy, intolerance or medical condition.

Schools have to ensure that a child with an allergy is able to eat a school lunch.

The Food Information Regulations 2014 requires all food businesses including school caterers to show the allergen ingredients’ information for the food they serve. This makes it easier for schools to identify the food that pupils with allergies can and cannot eat.

Read information and guidance on how to support your child if they have a specific requirement.
