Food Allergies at the Olympics
Food allergies don't define who we are. We have to learn to live with them but our capacities are still incredible. Not convinced? Check out this olympic athlete who is food allergic/intolerant....
Olympic swimmer, Dana Vollmer, has an egg allergy and is gluten intolerant. The 24 yr old olympic swimmer says that the toughest part is traveling and trying to find foods that she can eat on the road. Tough, but not impossible.
Even if you're not an athlete, just a food allergic fan, you'll be happy to know there are provisions for you. Are you in London at the Olympic Games? If so, be sure to read this article about what food can be brought into the games and what's available for purchase
