Travelling Abroad with Food Allergies
Travelling can be stressful if you suffer from food allergies, but it doesn’t have to be. Taking the time to prepare can reduce the risk of allergic reactions and help ensure your trip is as safe as possible.
Peanuts and tree nuts are among the foods which are most likely to cause an allergic reaction. In severe cases, these reactions can be life-threatening.

Allergy Awareness Week: Allergies to Pet Dander and Pollen
Allergy Awareness Week (24th – 30th April) is run by Allergy UK, who organise a series of awareness weeks throughout the year. The aim of Allergy Awareness Week is to highlight the issues faced by those with allergies.
We spoke to The ID Band Company customer Allie, 32, to find out how she manages her allergies, and why she thinks it’s important to raise awareness. She suffers from two of the most common allergies, which have caused her to have severe allergic reactions.
“I think it’s good to raise awareness about allergies, and how they affect people’s day to day lives. It’s also important to know how we can help each other.
“Since I’ve developed my allergies, my friends and family have started making a conscious effort to minimise risks when I visit.”
