The Allergy Superheroes have joined forces with the No Appetite for Food Allergy Bullying movement. What is this movement all about?
“No Appetite for Bullying aims to make a positive, lasting impact on the lives of children, teenagers and students with food allergies, by encouraging them, their parents, and peers to be voices against food allergy bullying. The campaign is a partnership between kaléo and national food allergy advocacy organizations, Allergy & Asthma Network (the Network), Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Connection Team (FAACT), Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), Kids With Food Allergies (KFA), along with the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI).”
Bullying of any sort is unacceptable, however, when you add a food allergy into the mix the results can be disastrous and potentially deadly. It is blatantly easy for kids to get their hands on another child’s allergen. Most parents wouldn’t think twice about a kid wanting to take a specific food to school. Not to mention how many allergens are present in a school’s lunch program every day.
