The 2006 Breakfast Lunch Training (BLT) Module, Meeting Children's Special Food and Nutrition Needs in Child Nutrition Programs, was developed to help school nutrition staff understand and apply the laws and regulations that require accommodations for children with special food and nutrition needs; and to familiarize staff with special needs frequently seen in schools. The 2011 revision reflects the 2008 USDA regulations regarding fluid milk substitutions in schools and also includes a new lesson on managing celiac disease.
Each lesson is designed to be taught in approximately 30 minutes. Each lesson contains a pre- and post-assessment, talking points and presentation slides for the instructor, activities, and fact sheets. Video accompanies lessons 1-4. Published 2007. Revised 2011. ET70-07.
