Thank you so much for this.
until this week I hadn't heard of ARFID and sounds very much like my daughter, though she did have some body dysmorphia when she was hospitalised with RAN.

she is a very limited eater and has no real issues eating higher calorie foods, just prefers everything to be "beige and bland" for her its more taste and texture "this is mushy" etc She also suffers a lot from anxiety which has raised its head again recently and this corresponds with an increase in pickiness.

this definitely something I am going to look into further, thanks again.
