What are feeding disorders or difficulties?
Also known as: feeding problems, picky eating, food fads, restrictive eating
The terms feeding disorders or feeding difficulties are frequently used to refer to infants and children who have problems with eating enough and/or an appropriate variety of foods. This increases their risk for abnormal physical, cognitive, behavioral and psychological development and can place a strain on family finances.
