In googling around trying to find something on "healthy eating" and young children developing AN I found this. It isn't about healthy eating and some of it may be controversial (watch out too for the nasty pictures, WHY do clinicians still DO that?) but it's an interesting short set of slides from one of the UK's leading clinicians.

This is with thanks to ATDT. Hoping to get him into full recovery and remission one day at a time. Getting him to a much higher weight, and with a much higher calorie plan than his clinicians gave him as a target, was instrumental to getting him to the strong recovery that he is in now. Food is the medicine.
