Food Issues

Food issues in adoption or foster careFood issues are not uncommon in adopted and foster children for a variety of reasons. Children adopted or fostered at an older age may have experienced food insecurity. They may not have known when or where their next meal is coming from. They may have experienced food being used as the only way to express love or to apologize for poor parenting or neglect. They may have only had access to “junk” food. Even babies may have food issues, especially if they have been exposed to drug or alcohol in utero.

Adoptive and foster parents need a plan to help their children overcome food issues.
