Caring for the younger child
Early recognition, diagnosis, care and support is important in minimising the physical and psychological effects of an eating disorder on the development of a younger child. You may notice a change in their mood and behaviour and they may appear distanced from their family and their friends. It may be very difficult to talk to them about your concerns in addition they may not find it easy to understand or to put into words what they are feeling.
