Why is catfish an odd choice?



It would be impossible to accommodate for every child's allergy. They would have to serve tofu every day. Come on guys, be realistic. :?

Fresh water fish allergies are near nonexistent. Shell fish is NEVER served in schools because of allergies. Neither are nut products. If a child has food allergies it is disclosed on their enrollment paperwork and considered in the schools dietary plans. If a child did have an allergy to a fresh water fish, they wouldn't ever prepare it on site because the smallest amount could cause a reaction.

In the past 20yrs MPS has never served it for lunch it was always a white fish served.

You will get even weirder things served at lunch at a private school, IF they serve lunch at all, because they aren't federally funded.

The school I went to offers uncrustable pbj sandwiches at least once a week...I didn't know it wasn't normal to offer nut products. Makes sense though.

Catfish is high in mercury? Not accordin g to any doctor I've EVER talked to. So glad you cleared that one up.

Catfish is delicious.

If you're not recieving a menu, ask why not. Hell, look on the school's website. It's probably there. There was also probably a second option he could of chosen instead.

Maybe, your son LIKES the catfish since he chose it? Just because you don't like it doesn't mean he can't.

They get all their food shipped in from a main distribution center, i know there it a little boy with nut and fish allergies in his class. I have noticed that all the breakfasts being served lately are gluten free. I just think their menu is strange from when i was a kid
