I have been asked to do a list of can/can't have for the chef at school and I really want to exhaust every avenue and there will be loads I've forgotten. Can you please add away...

Can't

No sugar in any form; sugar, xylitol, honey, stevia, maple syrup, agave syrup.

PLEASE CHECK INGREDIENTS IN OTHER THINGS AS WE EXCLUDE IT COMPLETELY e.g.canned tomatoes

No dairy whatsoever; milk, cheese, yoghurt, butter, cream

No grains; rice, wheat (bread, bagels, crumpets, wraps, pasta), quinoa, cous cous, corn including cornflour & sweetcorn, gluten free equivalent

No legumes; peas, lentils, beans (baked, kidney) chick peas

No white potato

No soy sauce or fish sauce or malt vinegar

Hot chocolate

Can

Any fruit

Any veg (except white potato, sweetcorn or peas)

Any unprocessed meat; chicken beef, lamb, pork, fish

Eggs

Olive oil, balsamic vinegar

Spices

Cocoa as long as no sugar

Coconut milk as long as no sugar

Wow. I'm going to take a different approach here and suggest that you give them basic instructions that will set everyone up for success. Our "rules" at school are as simple as no gluten, dairy, soy or HFCS. We have those rules because I know those are the biggest offenders where behavior is concerned. However, if you want to be a bit more detailed with them, I would go as far as:

No gluten

Dairy

Legumes (soy, peanuts, lentils, beans)

No added sweeteners

I wouldn't get as complicated as ingredients in vinegar or additives in canned foods (unless one of the above). The simpler you can make it, the better chance you have for full compliance on their part :)
