Myth vs Fact – Ordering at restaurants

Accompanying Information

Myth: “I don’t need to tell the restaurant. I was OK the last time.”
Fact: Always let the people who are preparing your meal know that you have a food allergy. It will help them guide you with your choice and help them know that they need to read all labels, be cautious about potential hidden ingredients, and prevent cross contact with the food that you are allergic to. Remember to always communicate. For more tips see Restaurants/ section of Living Confidently with Food Allergy Handbook.
