Spoonfed allows you to add Allergens for a number of different foods. This can help to keep Customers safe and aware of the ingredients in the Food.

Be sure to only include Allergens or Dietary Labels for Items that you know need them. If you aren't sure that an Item is Vegan, don't put that it's Vegan, even if the ingredients make it seem so.

Watch the short tutorial below:
