To meet the individual dietary requirements of students and staff and improve clarity for meal selection options that meet dietary requirements, Menu Items can be either excluded or un-selectable on the Desktop, Whiteboard, and Tablet.
Menu Items that are excluded based on allergy data will also be exclude based on dietary requirements. For example, if a Menu Item does not have any Diet Types  set then a Student Diet Type  with a Halal Diet Type  will not be able to select or see, depending on the configuration, a Menu Item that is not marked as Halal.
At site-level, to enable the feature to restrict menu items based on a Student's dietary requirements, go to Kitchen Manager > Sites  > select a Site  > Meal Selection tab  > Dietary requirements are not used checkbox 
By default, the ‘Dietary requirements are not used’ checkbox is checked. If the Show dietary menu items checkbox is un-checked then menu items with Allergens or Diet types will not be visible for selection.
If the ‘Dietary requirements are not used’ checkbox is un-checked then menu items with allergens will become grey bordered items in the Whiteboard and be un-selectable.
If the Show dietary menu items checkbox is checked, restricted dietary items will be visible but un-selectable. This is illustrated by a Grey border  around a Menu Item that does not meet the dietary requirements of the Student.
NOTE If the Show dietary menu items checkbox is un-checked then the restricted menu items, grey bordered items, will not be visible for selection.
