Does my child have an eating disorder?

Does my child have an eating disorder?

Many parents really worry about their child’s diet and eating patterns, in particular the limited range of foods a child will eat.
I would advise you discuss your concerns with the GP or Health Visitor first-they may need referring to a Dietician. In the mean time, give them what you know they will eat, until you have got some medical advice. Also, try to keep mealtimes as stress free as possible and avoid any stress or encouraging, forcing or negotiating.

Do you worry about your child’s diet?

There is so much information (and misinformation) out there.
Have a listen to this really interesting programme about developing healthy eating habits with your children.
Sometimes, a very restrictive eating pattern gives us clues about a child’s development.
If you are worried about your child’s diet and relationship with food, please give me a call.
