Everyone enjoys a nice plate of food – but only when the food is good and the time is right. 
Sometimes, we get offered food that we do not want. 
Unfortunately, in several scenarios, not accepting food might be perceived as rude and disrespectful. 

So, when is it rude to not accept food?
•	It’s rude if you reject food that you have never eaten before without any reason.
•	Sometimes, food is not about eating but about sharing a moment.
•	By not accepting a simple gesture, you’re bound to make the issue bigger than it should be.

When is it okay to refuse food?
•	If certain foods are a one-way ticket to the hospital, you might excuse yourself from eating it.
•	You should explain that is downright unhealthy for you to eat it.
•	If you have a bad history with it, you can explain why you won’t eat that food.
•	Sometimes, there are practical or ethical reasons behind not accepting food. Simply state the fact.

How should you refuse food?
•	Make it clear that it’s not about the food or whoever is offering it to you.
•	For whatever reason, a personal attack might come right after you decide to not accept food – and you shouldn’t let that bother you.
•	Avoid any potential escalation.

What to do when you can’t refuse food?
•	You can accept the food and leave it on your table.
•	Or just take a small bite and leave the rest.
