Pancake Day is just around the corner but for those with food allergies and intolerances, it can make you feel excluded and difficult to accommodate for.
Traditional pancakes contain three main ingredients: flour, eggs and milk. These ingredients all have associated allergies and intolerances but there are alternatives available, so it can still be a fun day for children and adults alike.
Food allergies and intolerances are becoming more commonly known globally. New laws have just passed meaning that all restaurants and takeaways across Europe must now provide information about whether their foods contain any of the 14 main food allergies.
