Superman Analogy

“Like lots of kids, Superman is faster than a speeding bullet and can’t be stopped. Like teenagers, he thinks he’s invincible and has a snazzy wardrobe. And, like children with food allergy and other causes of anaphylaxis, he can be hurt and weakened by even small amounts of a substance that is harmless to most. For Superman, it’s Kryptonite, for kids with a food allergy, it’s their allergen.” (

I love this quote, I think it’s a great way to explain how harmful food allergies can be to someone.
