Traveling with Food Allergies

Posted on May 10, 2018

"I had a great holiday with virtually no allergic reactions. I was especially afraid of traveling by plane and train in case of perfumes and colognes but it went really well and my children had such a great time and we made lots of aunts and uncles happy with our visit too. I am getting ready to go back to work." -A member on MyFoodAllergyTeam

On MyFoodAllergyTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with food allergies, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Traveling is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about traveling:

I’m vacationing in Punta Cana with a gluten and dairy allergy. Very hard talking to waiters etc.

I was so sick during my vacation I broke down and bought a portable gluten tester.

Here are some question and answer threads about traveling:

Does anyone have any tips for air travel with an allergic toddler?

My family is considering a temporary move out of the country. Any tips?

We are traveling to France and Italy this summer with our TN allergic 14-year-old. Any advice?

Can you relate?
