Although many food allergies tend to resolve in early childhood, there is still a significant impact on the quality of life of the child and their caregivers. This is exemplified by studies that have shown an increased risk of bullying in school children with food allergies (Lieberman 2010 AAAI, Shemesh Ped 2013, Sicherer 2014 JACI). In addition, food allergies constitute a significant burden on both social and economical resources in attempts to manage the disease. Food allergies that tend to persist, including shellfish, peanut, and tree nut allergies, have a continued significant impact on the quality of life, not only due to the strict dietary restrictions but also the constant fear of accidental exposure. A study investigating the economic impact of childhood food allergy in the United States estimated the overall cost to be $24.8 billion annually, averaging at $4184 per child.
Paarlberg shows Pathos, Ethos and Logos through the thought of unravelling worldwide starvation by being realistic of the view on pre-industrial food and farming. Pathos is clearly evident in Paarlberg’s article through the presentation of the food insecurity problem in Africa and Asia. He uses impassioned words as an attempt to reach out to his target audience on a more emotional level by agitating and drawing sympathy of whole food shoppers and policy makers.

Food and Agriculture Organization -- live in either Africa or South Asia, and most are small farmers or rural landless laborers living in the countryside of Africa and South Asia” (page 611-12). Paarlberg’s point

Thus these high energy nutrient poor foods displace core foods, which have severe negative impacts on the nutritional status of young children, contributing to increasing rates of obesity (Webb et al., 2006). Thus according to the Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) (2007) a many children aged 2-3 are not meeting the benchmark on a numerous essential nutritional requirements, for example dietary fiber intake for this age group was the lowest at 15.5g/day, which may hinder the child’s growth a development (CSIRO, 2007). In essence the Munch and Move lunchbox audits involved childcare teachers categorizing lunch boxes into three main categories that is: balanced, which contained at least a sandwich or home cooked meal and either

Despite the great wealth the United States possesses, it has for long struggled with poverty which is said to be inherited from one generation to another. The culture of poverty hinders those affected from economic betterment however much assistance they obtain from social programs put in place. The term Culture of poverty is believed to have been coined by Oscar Lewis, who suggested that children who grow up in poverty-stricken families are highly likely to adopt the norms and practices that encourage poverty. Thus, these children, he believed, would replicate the adapted values in their lives which would in turn generate a cycle of intergenerational poverty in the long run (Bell et al, 2013). Thus the culture of poverty is a topic which creates heated debates in both the public and political arenas.
