More shops and companies are becoming more inclusive however there are still problems. Do you have to go to restaurants and ask to see proof of ingredients because you or your children cannot have a certain food or ingredient? Do some restaurants or takeaway chains not have provision of ingredients or not serve you because of this!? Well, join this petition and lets make sure that ingredients and food restaurants or companies are much more inclusive!
Hi, my name is Naomi and I have Galactosaemia. Galactosaemia is a rare, metabolic health condition which means I cannot have any milk or lactose whatsoever, as if I do it builds up and I can potentially get brain damage.. I have an enzyme missing in my body. I have lots of friends who have Galactosaemia too.
I know a lot of people who can't have gluten as well. It sucks sometimes! There are "Free From" sections at supermarkets such as Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsburys and ASDA and stores such as Co-op which I am grateful for.... however some stores do not have much for those individuals with allergies, whether they are low risk or severe or health conditions such as Coeliac disease or Galactosaemia. Some theme parks, cinemas and other attractions do not have a lot which is free from or have a limited selection for individuals like me. I am making this petition to ask for more stores and attractions to include individuals with allergies and health conditions by providing more of a variety of food, food that everyone without allergies love and food that me, my friends and people like me can eat such as dairy and gluten free cake, sorbet, dairy free ice cream (Ben and Jerry's now have dairy free ice cream but cinemas don't sell this flavour)?
I love eating out, McDonalds is great if you ask for a burger without cheese or chicken nuggets as they do not contain milk, however individuals with gluten allergies can't eat a lot there. McDonalds, KFC, Subway and other similar restaurants have allergen charts/lists which is great for people like me but there are other restaurants that I have been to that do not have any awareness or will not show me ingredients! They sometimes "assume" but no, I need proof that the "chicken wings" have no milk in, otherwise I could be ill eventually... it would be great for ALL restaurants to have proof of ingredients or an allergen advice chart.
There are FOOD STANDARDS AGENCY that have created legislation for food allergen: https://www.food.gov.uk/business-guidance/allergen-guidance-for-industry but some companies have ignored it
