Reference Guide for School Feeding for Students with Special Dietary Needs

This Reference Guide and its attachments provide dietary orientations to primarily support the elaboration of special menus for the National School Feeding Programme (PNAE) and they do not aim to replace the assistance and prescriptions of doctors, nutritionists and other health
professionals. This Guide is based on clinical protocols and therapeutic guidelines (PCDT), national agreements and guidelines, as well as on applicable legislation. This Guide can be adapted depending on the district, state or municipality clinical protocols and therapeutic guidelines (PCDT) or based upon the decisions of a local responsible for school nutrition.
