Have you ever wondered what kids think about their food allergies? Is it as scary as we allergies think it is? Or is there a silver lining? Over the months of September and October I will be publishing the Allergy Kids Mini Series. Each week I will be talking to kids with food allergies about what they really think about having allergies and how they live with them everyday. These allergy kids range from as young as 4 years old all the way up to the grownup allergy kids. The aim of this mini series is to give you an insight into the thoughts, likes, dislikes, worries and celebrations of allergy kids and how it changes over the years. Many times allergy parents can worry that their child with allergies will miss out and will have a worse quality to life, but I know this isn’t the case and these allergy kids will show you how they don’t miss out, they just do things differently. Enjoy!

Today’s Allergy Kid:

Sam, 17 years old – severe nut allergy


What You’ll Learn:

Sam shares his experiences travelling to India for a school trip. He talks me through is apprehension before he went but how he wasn’t going to let his allergy stand in the way of this amazing experience. I ask Sam to talk me through how he prepared, what he thought about India, his favourite moments, how he navigated food, educating the hotel staff and chefs along the way and the best curry he’s ever had in his life.


Allergy Kid Top Tips:

  1. Don’t be afraid: don’t let your allergy stop you from travelling from everywhere you want to go
  2. Be prepared: carry your medication and always ask about what’s in the foods
  3. Check travel requirements so that you can stay safe
