Droylsden parents Cheryl and Chris Langley are aiming to make the lives of people with food allergies a little easier with their new dietary app.

They are developing Safe 2 Eat, an app that will let people with severe allergies know where and what is safe for them to eat when visiting restaurants.

Chris and Cheryl’s daughter Lois, nine, has been anaphylactic to cow’s milk since birth.

Cheryl said: “I think some people have it in their heads that nut allergy is the most severe, but you can have that same allergy from anything, so when we say it is a milk allergy people don’t always see it as life threatening.

“As a family we do like to go out for meals and it is just such a struggle, first finding somewhere that you feel safe to ask the questions, but you can end up stuck in a rut going to the same places because you trust the people there.”
