How to Provide Meal Time Support

Posted Mar 18 2013 3:21am
Meal times can be stressful and challenging for someone with an eating disorder as "food becomes attributed with unusual and extra meaning."  If you are reading this blog, you yourself are probably a sufferer of an eating disorder, or you are likely a loved one of someone who is battling an eating disorder. Furthermore, as a reader of this blog, you can probably relate to the stress attributed to meal times that I am referring to. 

Recently, I came across a great online booklet (written by the Auckland Eating Disorder Service in New Zealand) that provides several tips for providing meal time support during eating disorder recovery.  You can click  here  to view it.  This resource provides an introduction to meal time support, what works in meal time support, what doesn't work in meal time support, role modeling, boundary setting, communication, coaching, how to provide meal time support, as well as appendices for quick reference. Check it out and pass it on!
