The Student Body: Allergic and Overweight

    TORONTO, Sept. 3 /CNW/ - It's back to school, and back to a daunting
amount of food. There are cakes for student birthdays, pizza days, fatty
cafeteria foods, teacher rewards and fundraising goodies.
    In its Fall issue, Allergic Living examines "Food in the Class" in the
context of two trends: the doubling of the number of food allergic children
and of kids who are overweight. Writer Janice Paskey discovers that concern
about these two soaring health risks has started the pendulum swinging to
nutritious eating at school.
    That's great news for allergic students as well as the overweight, since
it reduces the exposure to food. But healthy change will not come easily -
many schools have come to depend on using food in fundraising and some parents
resent the intrusion. In this not-to-be-missed article, there are all the
ingredients of a looming food fight.
    Also in the new issue: Know your scent-free rights in the workplace.

    Allergic Living is available at Chapter's outlets and by subscription.
