The ‘TRIGGER’ Food Allergy Awareness Initiative has been created by Australian journalist and mother GRACE FARAH, whose daughter suffers from severe food allergies.
“Unless you are a sufferer, their parent or caregiver, it is impossible to imagine the perpetual vigilance required to keep them safe” – Grace Farah
