If your child suffers from a severe food allergy, such as a peanut allergy, he may be subjected to bullying at school. Bullying typically occurs because children do not understand how serious food allergies and their symptoms can be.

If you explain to children the facts about food allergies, and that exposure to the allergen can cause hives, respiratory problems, anaphylaxis, and even death, your child may not suffer from further bullying.
