ARFID Nutrition focuses on helping individuals with Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) build a healthy and varied diet. Unlike other eating disorders, ARFID is not driven by concerns about weight or appearance. Berry Street's personalized care aims to address sensory sensitivities, fears, and other underlying issues that limit food intake.
Recognizing the signs and symptoms of ARFID is essential for appropriate intervention. Working with a Berry Street dietitian can address concerns such as:
Limited food preferences and avoidance of certain textures or flavors
Fear of choking or vomiting
Nutritional deficiencies due to restricted eating
Weight loss or growth concerns in children
Guided nutrition support can transform the lives of those struggling with ARFID, fostering enjoyment and balance in eating.
ARFID can result from various factors, including sensory sensitivities, past traumatic experiences with food, and anxiety-related issues. Personalized nutrition therapy can help address these root causes, promoting a more diverse and enjoyable diet.
Unmanaged ARFID can lead to serious nutritional deficiencies, social isolation, and developmental challenges in children. Berry Street's personalized nutritional therapy focuses on minimizing these risks, building confidence and pleasure in eating.
