Why do children have a loss of appetite?
A four year old has lost his appetite not eating for days. Is it that he misses his mother? She started a new job and before that was home taking care of the kids. Since the mother is working the child is not the same. Is he depressed?
Eating is a big clue for moods. The key is there is a change in eating when prolonged results with a weight change. Anxiety and depression both can trigger overeating and less eating. One thing to note is depression many times follows anxiety. So, treating the anxiety becomes the major component of the healing process.
