The “Bite Sized Education” Series
In part 2 of “Does My Child Have an Eating Disorder?” we interviewed Dr Maria Monge, MD, a pediatric eating disorder specialist, who offers our listeners a medical perspective on signs and symptoms of eating patterns in children and teens that could be worrisome for the child’s health and development. Dr Monge identifies what is concerning vs average weight changes, appetite fluctuations, and body image in growing children. Dr Monge gives concrete examples of concerning behavioral changes around food for parents to be aware of as they navigate the challenges of raising children in a culture that is hyper focused on health and bodies.
We share our favorite resources for parents who want to learn more and need to connect with professionals in their area for additional support.
