Why is it so hard to feed your child in hospital when allergies are involved? It’s a question many of you ask on a daily basis!

Whilst you’ve all been talking, I’ve been listening to your struggles and quietly working behind the scenes to attempt to make allergies better understood.

One of the biggest battles you all face, myself included, is food provisions whilst in hospital.

Free from simply ISN’T catered for very well, or even at all in hospitals. In fact, the last time Callum was admitted, the ONLY thing he could have was a dry jacket potato as nothing else was safe or catered for his needs. Even basic gluten-free options can be tricky to get hold of.

It means that many of us have to rely on the mercy of family and friends to bring safe alternatives in to us. And this includes dairy-free milk, gluten-free options and more.

But what if this could be changed? What if the free from catering in hospitals could be improved?

I’m in the process of trying to prove that this is much needed to the very people who can make a difference, but in order to do this, I really need your help!

I’ve created a form to document just how widespread this issue is, and as a thank you for filling it out, everyone who completes the form will be entered into a prize draw to win a £50 M&S voucher. It's my way of showing appreciation for helping me really showcase the current situation, and the need for change.

Please can I ask that you share this far and wide so as many people as possible can have their say, and so real and positive change can be driven.

The survey will run until 27th March 2019, and the winner of the prize draw will be contact on 28th March 2019.

Thank you all for your help with this, together we CAN and we WILL drive positive and continued change!
