Avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) is a relatively new term. If you have ARFID, you'll strongly feel the need to avoid certain foods (or all foods).
ARFID does not tend to be linked to weight or body image issues. It's more anxiety about the process of eating itself. ARFID can result in not getting the nutrition and energy which you need to stay healthy. In children, it can affect healthy growth and development. It can also affect social relationships because food avoidance makes it hard to eat with other people.
As a small charity, we rely on the amazing generosity of the public to allow us to continue our work. Every donation is noticed and appreciated, and allows us to really make a difference in someone’s life – by helping to provide specialised one to one counselling sessions to people who would otherwise not be able to access them, run our support groups, and provide training so people can spot the signs of eating distress and help others seek the support they need as early as possible. We use Local Giving as our donation platform, and any contribution enables us to continue providing our supportive services for people struggling with anxiety around food
