Health Tip: Managing a Food Allergy at Work

(HealthDay News) -- Office lunches are a good opportunity to socialize with co-workers. But you should take precautions if you have a food allergy.

The Food Allergy Research and Education website offers this advice:

  • Suggest a list of restaurants you're familiar with.
  • Offer to book the meeting yourself, so you can speak with the restaurant manager.
  • If a restaurant can't meet your needs, don't be too shy to make an alternate suggestion.
  • Suggest a coffee break, instead of a full meal.
