Constipation, Picky Eating & Related Disorders
This problem, though rarely serious, causes discomfort and can lead to eating problems; this is very very common today. Any child that passes hard stools regularly, experiences vague or serious intermittent abdominal cramps, has a poor apetite and unexplained vomiting should be assessed.
There are a host of eating disorders. Some may have a medical basis and others related to pickiness and eating discipline. Parents have a significant role to play in managing these disorders.
