First-person stories from families living with food allergies

We know that living with food allergies can be isolating, especially if you don’t have friends or family who understand what you’re going through. Perhaps your child has got a recent diagnosis or is reaching a new milestone, like going on their first playdate or starting school, and you wish you knew how others had managed.

The good news is that there are lots of people who do understand, who have gone through similar challenges and have brilliant tips to share!

We asked some of The Allergy Team’s writers and supporters to tell their stories, in their own words and to share their top tips for thriving with a food allergy.
