We have a staff of nine and on occasion I will bring in homemade cookies because they’re a good team and we work well together. My boss recently had a gastric sleeve procedure and has already lost twenty pounds.
Would it still be appropriate to bring in homemade baked goodies, knowing my boss cannot partake? I don’t want to make her feel uncomfortable but she is a lady who know her own mind and I know not to directly offer them to her. I know she won’t be tempted and learning how to manage social situations with food is something she will have to handle. I don’t want to deprive the rest of the team of, what I must admit, is a tasty treat (the cookies are usually gone by the end of the day.)
Should I ask my boss if she’s okay with it? Or just bring the cookies in for the rest of the team to enjoy?
