I'm applying for jobs for the first time. I haven't written that I have a peanut allergy on my CV (resume) because I didn't think I needed to until I'm employed. Should I include it in my CV?

In the UK you cannot discriminate against hiring people with allergies. And honestly, maybe this is me thinking too good of people but surely workplaces should be paying attention to food allergies anyway? Because food allergies are so high?. I'm very young (19) and I'm scared that my peanut allergy will just be another thing to add to the list (young, no experience etc) making it harder to find a job.

Any advice?
