Food allergy and bullying

Bullying comes in many flavors, and when it’s related to your kiddo’s food allergy, it’s even more heart-breaking and can be challenging to address.

Bullying a kiddo with food allergy – what to do?

I’m delighted to have on the podcast my friend and colleague Jodi Shroba, CPNP, from Children’s Mercy Kansas City Food Allergy Center. Jodi and I will be discussing bullying.

  1. What does bullying look like when a kiddo’s food allergy is part of the bullying?

  2. What should parents do if their kiddo is being bullied?

  3. How should parents handle bullying when they themselves are the ones targeted?

Jodi recently presented on food allergy and bullying at the AAAAI 2021 conference, so you are not going to want to miss this discussion!

What’s your question on food allergy? On bullying?

Additional Show Notes

I talked about our non-profit…

The non-profit is The Teal Schoolhouse, whose primary program is Code Ana. Code Ana equips schools for medical emergencies like anaphylaxis. Our primary program is the Code Ana School Program, which is a comprehensive approach to school-focused medical preparedness. In a nutshell (pun???), this program guides schools through the process of creating a medical emergency response plan. A plan is important for all kiddos and for adults at any school! Our primary goal is to share the School Program. Code Ana’s Online Epinephrine Training Program helps support that goal. Through this program, you will educate yourself while you support this important mission! (BTW although Pam and I serve in leadership roles of Code Ana and The Teal Schoolhouse, our time/effort/work is completely voluntary). Does your kiddo’s school have Code Ana?
