Avoidant restrictive food intake disorder, or ARFID, is one of many different eating disorders. People who are diagnosed with ARFID are extremely selective or picky about what they eat. The disorder is most commonly seen in small children and babies, and while it is uncommon, adults can have the disorder as well.
Common signs of ARFID include a lack of appetite, eating very slowly, avoiding many different types of foods and difficulty digesting food.
