Kids with food allergies may face bullying

A new study finds children with food allergies may be the victims of bullying.

Researchers at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York surveyed more than 250 parents and their children with food allergies.

31% of the kids said they'd been bullied and the threats often involved food.

About half of the parents were surprised to hear that from their children, and children whose parents were unaware the bullying was going on had higher stress levels.
