"Food allergies limit where and how families with food-allergic individuals vacation," Dr. Sicherer said.
Although 94% of respondents said they still take vacations, about three-quarters indicated that they chose destinations on the basis of available medical care.

Vacation planning is just one of the many effects food allergies have on quality of life, he said.

Absolutely. At this point, with MFA and the age of my kids, we have not taken them outside of North America. There are other places I would go, like Britain and Australia, but at this point, it's not within my comfort level to bring them to a country where I don't speak the language fluently, and where food labels are not in English. It does certainly put limits on travel locations for now, but when they get older, we'll re-assess.
