Summary Introduction

Introduction: Feeding disorders in early childhood are conditions where a child refuses to eat and limits food intake. This can lead to various problems related to nutritional deficiency, weight loss, and daily functioning. The symptoms include loss of interest in eating, preference of liquid over solid, and longer mealtimes hinting an ultimate eating disorder.
