Some useful information on the what, why and how of eating disorders. I was particularly interested in the Selective and Restrictive sections - now combined within the American Manual of Psychiatry DSM (2013) into Avoidant & Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID). There is very little research base, but the information provided is clearly based on broad clinical experience. Reassuring that while ARFID has social implications, children who are permitted to eat their preferred foods will grow and develop normally, even if they frustrate their parents for years with fickle eating patterns! A handy antidote to the many fussy eating manuals which suggest that parents should starving children into eating. Also read books by Ellyn Satter and Katja Rowell for how to deal with this problem on a day to day basis and reduce family stress levels.
