Are food service personal aloud to prepare food for school kids without an approved recipe?

I work in a food production place. Items that require mixing (20000 servings or more) should have a receipe or least a guide. Is that true?

    Yes, especially with children. You have to be very aware of allergies and federal nutrition guidelines.

    By what standards? OSHA? The local health department? The FDA? The answer is “no” to all these. Professional chefs can very easily do large scale cooking without recipes. Its not difficult and there are no regulations.

    The federal nutrition guidelines are NOT a regulation. People who eat at restaurants and school children who eat is school cafeterias are responsible for their own safety if they have food allergies. Children’s parents must inform the school at the beginning of the school year to alert the staff to possible allergies. It is dealt with on an individual basis. Great care is taken in kitchens to insure the safety of these individuals. Special meals are made for students at each meal period. Most children, even really young ones, know the dangers of eating non-approved foods.

    (Currently, I am cooking for summer camps of young, school aged children)

    I would think there should be some standardization as to what is in something so nobody has an allergic reaction to it.
