Some bullies use words.
Others use food.
What happens when the two are combined?
The combination is unimaginable
Luckily, kaléo understands the need to help our food allergy community and I am happy to help spread the word!
Can you help out too?
No Appetite For Bullying aims to make a positive, lasting impact on the lives of children, teenagers and students with food allergies by encouraging them, their parents and peers to be voices against food allergy bullying. The campaign is a partnership between kaléo and national food allergy advocacy organizations which include Allergy & Asthma Network (The Network), Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Connection Team (FAACT), Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), Kids With Food Allergies (KFA) along with the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI).
While bullying in any form is unacceptable, when it's targeted at children and teenagers with food allergies it can escalate from emotional to physical bullying- even become life-threatening. Food allergies affect 1 in every 13 children in the US - or roughly 2 in every classroom and is a serious, potentially fatal condition.
No Appetite For Bullying is an anti-food allergy bullying initiative that raises awareness of food allergy bullying with the goal of creating solutions and encouraging food allergy acceptance.
