Your assignment is to modify the menu to suit the nutritional need of the population you selected.
Your assigned population group for this project will be children in grades K-8 (kindergarten through 8th grade). I have uploaded Audubon Elementary School’s lunch menus to your file folder
Menu for patient with Inflammatory Bowel Disease Karen is a 13-year student at Audubon Elementary School who comes to the urgent clinic with diarrhea and fever. This has been going on for a few days but got worse today. According to Karen’s mother patient has a history of Crohn’s disease. On assessment patient reports feeling weak and fatigued. Her heart rate is 120 and B/P 90/56. She reports being extremely thirsty and is quenching her thirst by sipping on large bottle of diet coke. She reports taking all her medications religiously.
