Delta Teens At Risk For Eating Disorders

Hello! Welcome to the Delta children’s health blog. I am entrpreneur and investor in human spirit Phil Hoskins. At this site, I publish information on nutrition and health issues that affect Delta children and families. My goal is to improve the state of children’s health in the Vancouver area.

Despite decades of increased awareness in Vancouver about the dangers of a distorted body image and extreme dieting, eating disorders are still a serious problem.

A recent American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) study revealed disturbing facts about eating disorders among children.1 According to the report, 0.5 percent of teenage girls in the country are estimated to have anorexia. The bulimia rate among adolescent girls is estimated at more than double that at 1 to 2 percent. Though anorexia and bulimia are usually thought of as a problem for adolescents, Delta parents should be aware that even young Vancouver children are at risk, as well as males, though the rates are lower.

BC pediatricians can help Delta parents with children affected by an eating disorder. The AAP recommends a combination approach for the treatment of eating disorders in children. Treatment plans usually include nutritional guidance and psychiatric counseling along with the appropriate medical care.
