Here is an article kids, allergies and legislation for US schools.

Quote:
Not many 7-year-old boys have an interest in U.S. Sen. Edward Kennedy, let alone visit Washington, D.C., to urge Congress to support food-allergy legislation for the nation’s schools.

But Gurnee’s Benjamin Block-Glickman is that boy, and he joined 97 other children last week to press the case to more than 30 lawmakers and their staffs. He was part of an effort organized by the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network.


It seems like politicians have a harder time ignoring families with allergies when they actually meet the kids we are trying to protect. That personal connection makes such a difference to understanding allergies in general, doesn't it.
