Learn more about ArFID

Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID)

ARFID, which stands for Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, is a condition where a person has a really hard time eating certain foods or enough food overall. Unlike some other eating disorders where people might avoid food because of body image issues, with ARFID, it's more about avoiding or restricting certain foods because of how they look, smell, taste, or even because of past bad experiences with them. This can lead to difficulties with  getting enough nutrients and growing, as well as, difficulties accessing social situations that involve food. It's important for someone with ARFID to seek support from someone who can help them find ways to access nutrition in a way that suits them.

We work closely with families to create individualised feeding plans that consider a child's motor needs,  psychological needs, sensory preferences, developmental stage, and any specific challenges they may face. Our approach is collaborative, ensuring that parents and caregivers are actively involved in the process, and their input is valued and incorporated into the feeding strategies.
