Tefilla Halacha

If on a ta’anis tzibur, such as this coming Tuesday, 17th of Tammuz, a person ate by mistake, he or she can still say aneinu in shemoneh esrei. If he or she ate a kezayis of food or drank a cheekful of drink, the wording should be altered slightly: the person should say: b’yom tzom hata’anis hazeh.

But a person who is exempt from fasting should NOT say the aneinu paragraph at all.
