Food allergy is noted for the social, mental, and financial impacts of a disease that remains of global public health importance. This study would summarise current research on the expense of food allergy at household and healthcare level, directly, indirectly and intangibly, and address new therapeutic and preventive methods which can be used to include comprehensive services for the food allergy community, by productive use of medical resources. Allergy to foodstuffs causes considerable costs on certain stakeholders which mostly affects domestic households. The need for a balance between household control of food allergy and the optimal utilisation of health services was clarified in recent research. Overall, there is a need to ensure the cost-effectiveness of early adoption, emerging food allergy treatments and the increased use of epinephrine to address the public health demands of the food-allergy population sufficiently.

Improved awareness of the effect on populations with food allergies will guide further policy development with a view to reducing socio-economic inequalities and, effectively, improving the quality of life of children and adults with food allergies.
