Dining out with food allergies can really be a struggle, but there are some ways you can make the experience safer and more enjoyable. These are our best tips:
Research the restaurant & the menu in advance.
Avoid buffets, they're a cross-contamination paradise!
- Try to dine at off-peak hours when it's less busy and it's less likely for mistakes to happen.
- Ask you server open-ended questions to force them to ask the chef about anything unknown.
Be prepared! Always carry auto-injector & other allergy medication with you.
Trust your instincts!
