In this episode, Dr. Toomey sheds light on best practice regarding the term ARFIDS, gives functional advice on what terminology should be used instead, discusses the prevalence of food allergies amongst our “picky eaters”, as well as giving functional advice for those that want to make a jump from a different setting into treating pediatric feeding disorders. It’s a whirlwind of an hour, but an hour with Dr. Toomey that is absolutely mind expanding!
