Thanks everyone - she is allowed artificial sweetener as far as I know - does anyone know how you substitute that for sugar in recipes?She is allowed fruit - just not sugar, honey or maple syrup and no sulphur dioxide which is in a lot of dried fruit- but I know there are organic dried fruits out there that don't have it in them.

Hi

Sugar subs are usually replaced one for one, but on cup measurements, not weight, as subs weigh less than sugar.Hope this helps, regards T

Your sister might like to consider buying the Bennessere cookbook - vegan (so dairy free) and sugar free. It's expensive - we got it as a gift but would have purchased it ourselves anyway. It's large and has lots of recipes. http://www.veganwellbeing.net/Benessere/Home.html

have a look in the diabetic baking thread there maybe some recipes suitable in there.

Almond meal which is available in the baking ingredients at supermarkets is probably a good way to go for someone not into dairy or sugar. It's useful to make things such as a base for desert.

Chef salad, yogurt, preeltzs. 3 things my 9 yo loves! They took the chef salad away cuz not enough of the grade school kids ate it. They also had cut veggies with ranch dressing and took that off too cuz no child except mine (apparently) would eat it. And they never had yogurt. I told her from the get-go it was a dessert. Now she loves it. And broccoli, spinach, and a lot of other veggies.They only have to meet a certain number with calories and fat for a meal to be accepted in schools. The best thing would be if you can pack your kids' lunch every day. I work full time and hope that the school can provide a decent lunch. There are times though that she's told me she had nachos for lunch. Not a real meal. And I pay for that crap!

If it's not appetizing, they're not going to eat it. Appetizing, hatelhy and affordable is not easy. Plus, preparing for 1,000 or so students in just 4 hours. If we could just get the battered and fried meats and vegies out, it would be healthier. They need more herbs and spices to enhance the flavor and less grease. Roast chicken can be easily prepared, so can chili and roast beef. But that's just three and they need at least a 10 day rotation. It's not an easy task!
