Many people have picky eating habits and may even avoid a number of foods, but when do these food preferences become problematic, especially for those managing food allergy?

This episode explores the answers to these questions and the diagnosis of ARFID (avoidant restrictive food intake disorder) which is a diagnosis becoming more well-known in those managing chronic conditions focused on food intake.

My guest, gastropsychologist Tiffany Taft, PsyD and I talk about: 

  • What ARFID is AND isn't; 
  • Differences between ARFID & picky eating habits; 
  • When to be concerned about picky eating habits; 
  • The role of anxiety/fear in the development of ARFID; 
  • When to reach out for help with allergy-related restrictive eating patterns; 
  • How therapists, mental healthcare  and medical professionals  should approach ARFID assessment and treatment; 

To learn more about ARFID, visit these resources:
