Schools will be open soon and although we know bullies didn’t take the summer off, the cafeteria bullies have had a summer break.

Lunchroom bullying like schoolyard bullying are hotspots in schools.

We haven’t heard a lot about food allergy bullying, however it is about time we do.  I recently posted an article on Huffington Post Parents with the assistance of Smart Sign.

Food allergy is a serious medical condition affecting up to 15 million people in the United States, including 1 in 13 children. Whether you’re newly diagnosed or brushing up on the facts, learning all you can about the disease is the key to staying safe and living well with food allergies.

Food allergy bullying is a growing problem in schools across the country. About a third of kids with food allergies report that they have been bullied specifically because of their allergies. – FARE
