I am K.Lo, born in the Netherlands with Chinese roots, my husband is from Belgium, thus Rice & Fries. We are living in the Netherlands.
I hope my blog helps other parents by showing how we try to make the most of our lives while having a young child with an eating disorder. But also to learn more about extreme picky eating, infantile anorexia and ARFID (Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder) and the support that is available. It’s not easy, and you are not alone. ❤️
Our daughter, Elodie, was born with a feeding and eating disorder. She was later diagnosed with infantile anorexia and Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID). These eating disorders are more than regular picky eating, and usually needs help to overcome.
It has been quite a journey, and we are not there yet, but we are making little steps. We want to give you a peek into our life with a special needs child.
When we first started this bottle and food refusal journey I was scavenging on Google about eating disorders in young children. I felt incredibly lonely in this world of normal eating children, and I was looking for families who were experiencing similar problems. I was very happy with whatever I could find online.
Lastly, eating out is a big part of Elodie’s recovery journey. We love good food and we love fine dining. Going out to restaurants or travelling with a child (with an eating disorder) is a bit more challenging, but we want to share our experiences. Luckily most restaurants are very child friendly.
