I agree--the article is one that is good to share.
Hat's off to Child for posting the article online.
So forward the link, buy the magazine, subscribe or email them to let them know that you appreciate it--especially the social/emotional angle that is often overlooked.
Of course we need to keep our kids safe, but their emotional adjustment and their quaility of life is also so important.
Take care,
Gina

Great article! thanks for posting the link.
I can see CHILD really gets it, as the editor has a DD with food allergies.
My least favorite parts were the FAAN quote and the wacko dr about overreaction to PA. THat guy just doesn't seem qualified to make that statement at all.
THe rest was excellent, and thorough!

Ahhhh! Someone here was interested in Dr. Sicherer's explanation of why walnut/pecan allergic kids have to worry about coconut cross-reactivity.
Here's an opportunity to ask him. I'm pretty sure he'd answer that as it's a hot topic with coconut now being disclosed on labels (I think?).

Yes I was interviewed for this story as well and was misquoted which is frustrating. I never said I am for non segregated lunchrooms what I said is I want nut free schools.
I contacted the editor on this and have heard that they are looking into it.

The thing that always makes me laugh is the "we'll have a treatment in five years" line. I've been hearing that same thing for six and a half years!!!

You can chat with the author Pam Kruger or ask questions for Dr Sicherer here:

at their Park Bench message board.
Please take a minute to respond. When you do, Child will know there is interest in the topic.
There are 5 million allergic children in the US alone. Let them know we want to hear more.
Take care,
Gina
