Eating Disorders in Children
This condition is more common than one may believe. Studies have shown there is a high prevalence of eating disorders in children below 16 years of age. Disinterest in meals, avoiding meal times, putting on or losing too much weight for no apparent reason, are some indicators of eating disorders you need to look out for.
An eating disorder in your child could be due to:
- An underlying disease that may have remained undetected
- A mental health issue like body insecurity, anxiety or stress which can lead to conditions like anorexia nervosa, bulimia, food gorging
As any other health condition, an eating disorder also can turn chronic and have serious consequences if ignored or left untreated. Malnutrition, obesity, weak bones, increased susceptibility to infections and anemia and some serious fallouts of the condition.
