Default Meal Deduction

Can we claim the standard deduction for food not reimbursed by the food program. For example, I do 2 snacks a day, but since the food program reimburses for one, can I claim the other on my taxes?

Default food program

Yes, you can claim up to one breakfast, one lunch, one supper, and three snacks per day, per child when using the standard meal allowance to deduct food expenses. The meals that are not reimbursed by the Food Program do not need to be nutritious.
