    Kids With Food Allergies Often Victims of Bullying

    Kids with food allergies are frequently bullied and harassed by their classmates and even their teachers, a new study finds.

    About 35 percent of children over the age of 5 who are allergic to certain foods have experienced harassment, taunting or bullying at school because of their allergies, researchers at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York found.

    Eighty-six percent were teased repeatedly, most often by classmates. But more than 20 percent of kids reported they were harassed or taunted by their teachers and other school staff.
