This Sunday the New York Times Magaizne Section's cover story is about children with food allergies. The article is pretty good and sympathetic overall, but doesn't go quite far enough.

Once again (pain in the butt that I am), I am asking you to write. Munchkin's Mom, your letter would be a GREAT response to this article.

Great idea, I will send off a letter this week. I thought the article was very good, especially the discussion of parents dealing with "risk-assesment" and "secondary traumatic stress disorder." The article could have covered more areas (schools, food bans, bullying etc)but it is great to see a major publication as the NYT magazine devote so many pages to food allergies!

The website has a discussion board devoted to this article. I think it would be nice if some of our members could join in the discussion. I posted my letter in this format as well as emailing it to the NY Times.
