6 Common symptoms of a pediatric feeding disorder

Pediatric feeding disorders are more common than most think, afflicting up to 10 percent of all infants and children, according to published literature. Children classified as having a feeding disorder do not consume enough calories and nutrients to promote healthy growth and development. It is important to differentiate between a picky eater, who may consume a restricted but still nourishing diet, from a child who consumes, for example, only three to four types of foods, eliminating entire food groups and compromising healthy growth.

Common symptoms of a pediatric feeding disorder are:

  1. Weight-loss or failure to gain appropriate weight
  2. Choking/coughing during meals
  3. Unexplained fatigue, loss of energy
  4. An abrupt change in eating habits lasting longer than 30 days
  5. Delayed development of skill set necessary to self feed or consume higher textures
  6. Disruptive behavior during mealtime
