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.

Thanks Marcella. Very interesting slides, which sums up treatments and their success rates and variants well. 
D diagnosed restrictive AN June 2010 age 13. Mostly recovered 10 years later.  Treatment: multiple hospitalisations and individual and family therapy.

Thanks a lot Marcella
D became obsessed with exercise at age 9 and started eating 'healthy' at age 9.5. Restricting couple of months later. IP for 2 weeks at age 10. Slowly refed for months on Ensures alone, followed by swap over with food at a snails pace. WR after a year at age 11 in March 2017.
