  • Food aversions
  • Lack of interest in eating or food
  • Avoidance based on sensory characteristics of food
  • Fear of choking or other adverse consequences
  • Serious medical and psychological complications consist of
    • Severe malnutrition
    • Growth failure
    • Marked interference with psychosocial functioning
