Episode Description

Picky (and unhealthy) eating is a common difficulty associated with ADHD — whether due to comorbid sensory issues, medication side effects, or some other challenge. In some cases, the problem is not picky eating at all but a feeding disorder like Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID). Here, clinical nutritionist Kelly Dorfman — a leading expert on targeted nutrition therapy and author of the award-winning book Cure Your Child with Food — will explore the latest research and strategies to address the unique eating challenges caused by ADHD neurobiology.

In this webinar, Kelly will explain the distinctive ways ADHD and SPD complicate a child’s relationship with food, why good nutrition is key to optimizing the ADHD brain, and positive strategies to help children enjoy healthy food.

In this webinar, you will learn to:

  • Manage the most common picky eating challenges
  • Identify signs of more serious feeding disorders and understand why conventional picky eating approaches do not work in these cases
  • Recognize how sensory issues affect eating and find specific ways to address them
  • Use clinically effective techniques to improve eating habits
