I'm making my third trip to Kenya in August, flying there and back with Swiss Air (so lucky that the cheapest flight also happens to be with the only certified allergy aware airline in the world!) I'm pretty confident about the flight food, has anyone flown with them recently? Any idea if I can carry an extra hold bag of prescription food?

 

Kenya is going to be interesting. If anyone has been before on a gluten-free diet I'd love to hear about it. I stay with the same family each time so I won't have to eat out but how I'm going to explain what gluten is, what it's in and why I don't trust the housegirl to cook for me any more is going to be complicated and probably cause some offence along the line... I'll report back! On the upside, it will definitely be a whole foods diet for a few weeks as I don't trust the labelling there at all - the only allergic reaction I've ever had was to the additives in a pack of instant noodles I had out there.

Hehe thank you! I fell in love with the place during my gap year in 2010-11 and now run a small charity building classrooms at rural schools. I haven't been for two years and it feels like going home after a long time away. Luckily my favourite dish - githeri - is basically a bean and potato stew and the 30p mangoes are also gluten free ;) Mmm...mango!
