Childhood Eating Disorders - Care 'Urgently Needed'
01 April 2011
There is an urgent need for services to recognise and treat eating disorders in young children, say doctors.
The first study of the scale of the problem in the UK has been published in the British Journal of Psychiatry.
The study of UK and Irish data suggests three in every 100,000 children under the age of 13 have an eating disorder, including children as young as six.
