Eating disorders include conditions like binge eating, bulimia nervosa and anorexia nervosa. These include a variety of very extreme attitudes and behaviors that surround the consumption of food as well as weight and body image. These conditions are very serious, and they can cause serious health problems.
Children with feeding disorders generally have challenges somehow related to eating or drinking. Different children develop different kinds of problems. Some children refuse to eat completely. Others might still eat a little bit, but not enough to maintain a healthy weight or grow up properly.
Children have many different issues, as some might have difficulties chewing or swallowing. Other children might not end up with a healthy or balanced diet since they will refuse to eat all but certain foods. A multi-disciplinary approach to assessment and treatment of children with pediatric feeding disorders is necessary.
