“He told me he wanted to start getting fit for the new sport season, so I just thought he was eating healthier….”
“She had never really been a picky eater and really enjoyed food until 8th grade and then something changed. It was like she was becoming a different kid when it came to food…”
These are all comments that I often hear from parents when their child comes in for their first eating disorder nutrition assessment.
