Thank you so much for writing this! I saw the clip & it was terribly juvenile. I was more embarrassed for them than offended for families with food allergies.

I applaud your effort to provide education by writing this letter. Thank you very much for meeting this with a helpful hand. I have one request as you move forward in providing education and awareness-- In these discussions please be mindful that we need to educate and raise awareness that life-threatening food allergies are not restricted to those with nut & peanut allergy. Unfortunately too many people harbor this dangerous misimpression that only nuts cause life threatening reactions.

You know, I remember seeing Smurfs 2 for the first time. The birthday party scene had me in stitches. Of course, other parents didn't think that I should think it was funny. I wasn't offended at all. To be honest, I was laughing because I could relate to the experience! That is exactly what I looked like at birthday parties: The helicopter mom at the ready with an Epi-Pen. As seriously as I take my daughters allergies, I have had to learn to laugh at myself. I also find that if I take a...

Ellie, I agree that humor and self-deprecation are priceless tools to have at the ready when dealing with food allergies. I've never wanted to be THAT mom even when I've HAD to be that mom. The best solution, of course, is if I could zap FA out of existence once and for all.

Letter To NBC: Jokes About Food Allergies Can Put People in Danger

Kids With Food Allergies ·
On behalf of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) and the more than 15 million Americans living with food allergies, I am writing with some concerns about a recent broadcast on the Today Show entitled “Coming Out of Their Shells.” The segment featured Matt Lauer and Al Roker as they searched for the world’s largest pistachio. In the episode, they make light of and even laugh at nut allergies.
