Tolerate's dietitians work closely with restaurants and cafes to carefully review all dishes on a menu in detail, assessing whether they are suitable for certain food allergies, intolerances, or dietary lifestyle choices. Our platform allows you to see all the dishes on a menu suitable to your individual dietary needs. No matter whether you have one or more dietary needs, we provide you with the guidance you need to eat out with less stress, more confidence, and most importantly enjoyment. Essentially we provide you with a dietitian in your pocket!
