Abstract:Eating problems are a relatively rare in children and usually rely on a phase. Sometimes, this phase does not pass and serious problems such as an Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) can arise. ARFID is a new understanding in feeding problems, and replaces the DSM-IV diagnosis ‘Nutritional disorder in infant or early childhood’. To treat children with ARFID, the teaspoon method was developed. In the teaspoon method, both positive and negative reinforcement is used in combination with an escape extinction (a 15 minute break), since positive reinforcement alone did not contribute to an improved diet pattern of the children. The teaspoon method is quite a drastic method to execute for the whole family, and whether it succeed depends on how the parents implement the method. Therefore, it is important to investigate what changes parents have observed in their child, themselves, and their family situation since the start of the method and what their experiences with the method were.
