Globally, food allergy is increasing in prevalence across all age groups, and has been shown to have a strong impact on the lives and well-being of children, teens, adults, parents and their families.

In order to better understand, and support, those living with food allergy, psychologists in Ireland have created the Food Allergy Coping and Emotions (FACES) project. This project aims to create tools and measures to better understand the emotional and psychological impact of living with food allergy, and the different strategies used by people of all ages to manage the condition. The findings will help deepen our understanding of the impact of living with food allergy and what can be done to improve life quality. To achieve such aims, they are looking for parents and\or children with food allergies to participate in a short survey. It consists of self-report questionnaires, taking approximately 10-15 minutes. All the data is anonymous, there is no need to provide your name or address, and there is no correct answer. They are only interested in your opinion.

Therefore, if you’re a parent of a child with a food allergy and you’re willing to participate, click on the link below:


More information about the project is provided on this link. Your child can also participate through the same link, after selecting the appropriate age category. Your answers will not be matched, so there is no problem if only one of you choose to participate. However, their answers are extremely welcome – and important- as well. If you have any questions about the project, contact us directly through email (Dr. Audrey, ; Gabriel Coelho, postdoctoral researcher, ).


Thank you in advance!
