Sunday – THE SECRET LIVES OF FUSSY EATERS

  • Sunday 30 Jul 2017

Everyone knows a fussy toddler who wont eat their greens. But some people dont grow out of it, refusing to eat anything except a narrow range of mostly beige food chips, white bread, chicken nuggets and anything else fills them with deep disgust. They suffer from a newly identified and very serious eating disorder called ARFID Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder. This Sunday Special documentary goes inside the homes and diets of some of these young Kiwis including teenage Jake Thompson, who ended up with such severe malnutrition he went blind.
