Espoo schools and further education colleges cater for special dietary requirements upon clear medical grounds. The school health service cannot provide a letter confirming the need for a special diet and you must obtain it from your own doctor. You are not required to provide a new doctor’s letter every year, provided that the pupil or student’s dietary requirements and their school/college have not changed.
However, we do ask that you notify the school kitchen of your requirements at the start of the new school year to ensure that we can cater for your child’s needs.
A doctor’s letter is NOT required for
- lactose free or low-lactose diets
- vegetarian diets, or;
- religious diets.
You will find a Notification of a Special Diet on Espoo Catering website
