When Picky Eating Goes Awry: The Difference Between Selective Eating and ARFID

About the event: Despite the adage that picky eating is “just a phase”, many children don’t “grow out” of their picky eating habits. This presentation will focus on helping healthcare providers understand when picky eating is harmless or developmentally appropriate - and when it crosses the line to become an eating disorder known as avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder, or ARFID.

During this presentation, Dr. Jessie Menzel, clinical psychologist and VP of Program Development at Equip, will discuss the factors that drive extreme selective eating, and how an understanding of these factors can inform treatment.

There will also be time for Q&A.


Learning objectives: After participating in this session, attendees should be able to:

  1. Differentiate between picky eating and ARFID.
  2. Identify warning signs of problematic picky/selective eating.
  3. Describe assessment strategies for identifying picky/selective eating that meets criteria for ARFID.
  4. Identify treatment goals for ARFID patients with selective eating.
  5. Describe at least two treatment strategies for expanding dietary variety.
