Allergy Awareness and Special Diets



It is reported that around half a million people in the U.K. currently suffer from a severe, life threatening, food allergy. The prevalence of food allergy is at its highest amongst children, around 1 in 17, according to the U.K Charity “The Anaphlaxis Campaign”.

Around 1 in 100 of our population suffers from Coeliac disease and cannot eat foods containing gluten, although it is estimated that this figure may rise to 1 in 10.

So it is vitally important that all those people who provide catering for others, whether in commercial or voluntary catering services, schools and particularly in a care settings are aware of the needs of those customers with special diets.
