Research Opportunity: 14-26 year olds with food allergy

Risks of eating disorder development in a national food allergy cohort: The RiskED study

Have you ever had a food allergy? Do you currently live in Australia and are 14 – 26 years old?

The Murdoch Children’s Research Institute is inviting you to participate in an anonymous survey, which aims to understand eating behaviours among young people with a food allergy.

The information received from this survey may be used to develop education and referral pathways for the early detection and management of eating disorders in those living with food allergy.

If you have ever had a food allergy and are aged between 14 – 26, please consider sharing your experiences in this survey – even if you haven’t had disordered eating.

You can see the online survey, further information and consent via the following link at 

The survey is voluntary, your responses will remain anonymous and you can withdraw from the study at any time. The survey takes around 20 minutes.

Please read the information statement before deciding whether or not to participate in this research. This will appear when you click the link to the survey. If you need any further information regarding any aspect of this study, please contact the researcher below.

Thank you for your consideration.
