There are essentially two ways to accommodate dietary restrictions or allergies when you have a meal that conflicts with one of you group member’s restrictions:
- Substitute ingredients: For example, substitute a gluten-free bagel in place of a normal bagel when serving breakfast. In other words, everyone eats the same meal, but there are alternate ingredients available. For information on automatic ingredients substitution, see the help article here
- Substitute meals: Occasionally an entirely different meal must be served to accommodate the individuals dietary restrictions (eg. In a group of 20, three gluten-intolerant individuals eat “Rice & Beans” while the rest of the group, 17 individuals, eats Spaghetti and Meat Balls. In the event you want to substitute a meal, the following process works best
- Add BOTH meals to the meal planning grid by dragging and dropping them into the appropriate cel
- At the bottom of the meal planning page, under the heading “CURRENT MEAL PLAN”, adjust the column “# of Individuals Served” to reflect the substitutions needed. In the example above, we would set “Rice and Beans” to 3 and “Spaghetti and Meatballs” to 17.
