Special Dietary Needs

Lexington’s Dining Service and Registered Dietitian (R.D.) will work with parents, school nurses, teachers, and health care providers to help manage students’ food allergies and special diets by:

  • Working with physicians, dietitians, or qualified nutrition specialists to manage dietary substitutions.
  • Knowing where emergency medications are stored and knowing how they should be administered in case a student has an allergic reaction.
  • Reviewing menus with parents of students who have food allergies to determine what, if any, menu items need to be substituted.
  • See our nutrition page for more information

Healthier Selection

Gould Academy’s dining program is always focusing on Nutrition. Here at Gould we offer our Nutrition Alive program that meets the needs of healthier options for today’s college student.
