Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder

Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) is a type of eating disorder which commonly affects children but can also occur in adults.  Typically a person with ARFID will only eat a limited variety of foods.  Sometimes this is due to sensory processing difficulties, lack of interest in eating, or fear of vomiting or choking.


At Thoughtful Health our dietitian, Cassie Hoole, can help in the treatment of ARFID, assisting with restoring weight and correcting nutritional deficiencies while managing anxieties and fears about certain foods.
