What careers are out of the question with allergies?

I've been pondering this for a while. DS is only 10 but because he has an epi-pen I assume he couldn't go into the forces (so red arrow pilot and space station astronaut are out sad). He also thinks he might like to go into the police but I wonder if a couple of severe allergies would rule that out too?

What's he allergic to? Some food might not be a big deal because it's not like you'd be on deployment and fed what ever they have going but IDK (I'm new to allergies and know nothing about the police).

older just kiwi and pine nuts. With a lesser allergy to apples and pineapple.

If they carry an epipens then police, army, navy are a no go plus a few others
