The NY Times did an article referencing the one posted below about bullying a child about their food allergy:

They talked about non-allergic children asking questions about food allergies and how it can make for an uncomfortable moment for the parents.  Do find it intrusive to answer questions about your child's allergies?  Have they ever felt left out or bullied over it?
