    I am from Victoria, Australia.. so I dont know if I qualify...? It's my husband that has coeliac disease .... 

    1. Coeliac disease AND other allergies

    2. Shop at all of those places

    3. Yes compared to 10 years ago when there was hardly any

    4. Probably gluten free desserts / puddings but also healthier snacks such as nut bars and savoury snacks that dont have so much sugar and fat content

    5. Healthier desserts and snacks at more reasonable less fat / sugar.  Also more products that cater for other allergies as well as g/f, e.g. egg, corn, rice and some fruits

    6. Sure is.. g/f products are probably nearly double the price, although eat in and take away meals are not much higher.. usually only a few dollars extra

    7. Sometimes 

    8. Usually bistro dining .. steak & vegies.. scallop potato. Sometimes Chinese.. beef & vegies.  And take away.. Pinky's 'Ribs on the Run' without the sauce.

    9. Usually make foods from scratch

    10.  1

    11.  1. Nutritional value   2. Cost   3. Origin   4. Appearance  5. portion size

    Good luck with your assignment.. hope it can be used to make a difference!!
