What You Can Do About Food  Allergy Bullying
From the Allergic Living magazine archive, we bring you an exceptional article: “Food Allergy Bullying on the Rise”.
  It features interviews with leading experts, including parenting and bullying author Barbara Coloroso and Dr. Scott Sicherer, chief of the division of allergy at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.   
   The article explains the study that found an astounding one in three children with food allergies has experienced bullying, harassment or teasing because of their allergies – most of it occurring at school.  
   The experts explore the emotional impact of taunts like “peanut kid” and the raw fear of a reaction when allergenic food is thrown or waved in an allergic child’s direction.
