What is AFRID?

Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, or ARFID, is characterized by staying away from certain foods or eating very little food. Like anorexia, ARFID results in malnutrition, but unlike anorexia, it is not a result of body image issues. ARFID is common in infants or children and can persist into adulthood.
