*An exposure to feared food is when you intentionally eat a food that you normally fear and avoid without doing anything to compensate for eating it like exercise, self-induced vomiting, or restricting eating before or after. For example, if you normally avoid eating pizza and fear eating it will make you suddenly gain a lot of weight, you and your therapist may have agreed that you would eat pizza between therapy sessions without doing anything to compensate for eating it.
Researchers at BC Children’s Hospital are looking for families of children (4-18 years) who are generally healthy to participate in an anonymous survey about eating behaviours and physical symptoms.
