There comes a point when some children get so picky with their food it can get a little annoying. But new evidence is showing that this is leading to some serious health issues and becoming the beginnings of a new eating disorder. So when does it get that far? Anorexia recovery centers in Roseville have found that a new eating disorder has emerged out of this habit and it’s called ARFID (avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder). This eating disorder is a bit different from others in the way that it generally affects children and it comes from something traumatizing that happened even earlier in their young life. It could be something such as choking on food to having a dysfunctional relationship with someone close to set it off.
People need to be made aware
While ARFID is still a fairly unknown and unique eating disorder, professionals who discovered the disease as well as anorexia recovery in Roseville are trying to put it out in to the world so people can be aware of it.
