Letter to My Child's Teacher Regarding His Dietary Restrictions.....
If your child has special dietary needs, as our son does, you may use this letter to inform teachers, coaches, group leaders, etc. about those needs.
Our concern is related to foods/drinks with red dye; yours may be different so I have left blanks in which you may fill in the specifics of your concerns when you print this or after downloading it to your own word processor.
Dear Mr./Mrs. _________:
Thank you for your willingness to take on this special but demanding role as _____.
We have a big favor to ask regarding our son _____. He is diagnosed as having ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder), and under the best of circumstances without the excitement of a party and under proper medication he can be a real handful in terms of behavior. His problems intensify dramatically if he eats or drinks anything containing _____. He becomes nearly uncontrollable.
_____ is very aware of his food allergy and is generally very good about turning down the offer of anything that may cause problems for him. Being able to eat and drink something at _____, however, is very important for him to feel a part of the activities. If something could be provided for him as an alternative treat without the _____, we would be most grateful. If this proves burdensome, let us know ahead of time and we will make sure that something comes with him that he can have.
Thanks again for your time and activity on the kids' behalf. Please call us at _____. We desire to help and support your efforts as much as possible.

"Thank you for understanding me."
