Handling Dietary Restrictions at Work

Apply these three simple tips to be inclusive of your co-workers with dietary restrictions when stocking the breakroom.

The best breakrooms encourage work-life balance, build office camaraderie and morale, and promote healthy living.

Here’s how to be inclusive of your teammates with dietary restrictions:

1. Solicit input.

Keep a running list of requested snacks and drinks, and distribute a survey asking about allergies and dietary requirements.

2. Host a potluck.

Run with a fun theme and have everyone contribute something they like and can eat.

3. Prioritize organization.

To prevent accidental contamination from the eight major food allergens, designate specific cupboards and refrigerator shelves and drawers.
