If you are planning a wedding or any other sort of event in the near future, you need to think about offering customized meal options. Why is this the case? Here are two primary reasons.
A Customized Meal Is Necessary for Many Guests
According to foodallergy.org, almost 1% of Americans are dealing with one or more food allergies. Some of these allergies can cause a life-threating reaction. There are millions of others who have food sensitivities, and while they may not die from eating a certain food, it can certainly affect their health – sometimes for weeks.
If you want to show respect for your guests, you need to find out if anyone attending your event has an allergy or sensitivity. For a serious allergy, you may have to plan the entire meal accordingly. For sensitivities, you may be able to offer a customized meal for the individual.
A Customized Meal Is Fun
One of the big trends in catered meals is to have at least one customizable food station. Whether it is a beverage station, a dessert station, or a part of the main meal, you want to give guests choices. Many people enjoy creating their own coffee, sundae, or another meal component.
