Feeding difficulties in children and adolescents with chronic illness.

Abstract:
Good health demands good nutrition and in the child it is reflected in normal growth. Children who cannot or do not eat properly often become unwell and do not grow. This becomes a source of great concern and anxiety for their parents. Several chronic illnesses in children impair normal feeding; this article aims to describe the interrelationship between eating and disease in children with reference to some common conditions. The effects of childhood eating disorders on parents and families will also be considered.
