#EasyToAsk: Living with a Food Allergy Survey
We’re running a survey with the Food Standards Agency and the Anaphylaxis Campaign to hear from you. If you’re aged between 16-24 and have a food allergy, please fill in our survey now.
Living with a food allergy is never easy, but for some young people it’s having worrying implications. Many young people are too embarrassed to talk publicly about having a food allergy or intolerance especially when in a social setting – risking allergic reactions or even more fatal consequences. Research shows that 41 per cent of young people (16-24-years-old) with food allergies or intolerances don’t feel confident at all or only feel a little confident to ask serving staff for allergen information. The research also reveals that 60 per cent of those surveyed avoid dining out due to their condition.
