6 y/o with SED

Any other parents of children with Selective Eating Disorder? My boy is just about to turn 6, and has been struggling with this since, well, just about always. My other two have no eating problems (15, 5).

I would just love to connect with other parents who have experiences or advice to share.


Hi there!! Thank you so much for your post!

I'm sorry to hear about your son!! But I think he is very fortunate to have such a loving parent!! Although I am not a parent, I can definitely emphasize with your concerns for your child. ED's are very complex confusing things and it truly does help to communicate with others who can help!!

Have you heard about the NEDA Navigator program? It consists of volunteers, many of whom are parents of recovered children, who are here for you to provide personal, private support for you and your son!! It really is a great way to speak with others who have more experience and it is a really safe way to get support. Here's a link to learn more!!

I hope this helps!!! Please let me know if you have any questions!!
