The report will display the following, the childs name, children’s session sets, any allergies & lastly their dietary preference.

Filters on the dietary preferences & allergies:
All Rooms: This allows you to filter by all rooms or a specific room.
All children: The report automatically defaults to all children however you can change this to children due in. This means only children due in will appear.
