One of FEAST's projects has been to work with Project Heal with a view to developing better Peer to Peer support world wide. If you don' t get FEAST emails then you missed the attached PDF yesterday which has a link to a survey. The goal is to offer better and more personalised support. 

Please consider taking the time to complete the survey.

13 yo d started to eat "healthy" September 2018, she had a growth spurt a bit later, followed by tummy bug. She started restricting breakfast and school lunch in January 2019 (that we know). We succesfully refed at home.
I have found inner strenght, patience and compassion that I did not know I had.
Never retreat, never surrender
keep feeding
