A child with a fear of food who can only eat yogurt and double bread
LONDON: Twelve-year-old British boy Ashton Fisher suffers from a very rare and bizarre disease that makes him afraid to eat and eats only yogurt with fruit ingredients and white double bread of a certain brand.
Ashton’s condition has persisted for the past ten years, troubling not only his parents and teachers, but also his friends.
At first, Ashton’s parents thought that he was eating like other children, but despite all efforts, Ashton’s condition worsened instead of improving.
He always took Ashton to the general practitioners for treatment who did not understand the problem and the problem continued.
As time went on, Ashton became so frightened by the aroma of cooking that he stopped eating with his family and ate the special double bread and yogurt he had brought for himself. Began to do.
Even after entering the school, his routine remained the same and he never ate anything with his friends. As a result, he could not make special friends at school.
Ashton’s illness was discovered by chance last month when he was first examined by a dietitian.
He soon realized that this child was suffering from a mental illness in which the person was afraid to eat anything except certain things. This psychological problem is a kind of “food phobia”.
Ashton Fisher was treated as soon as he became aware of the problem and since then his condition has been gradually improving and now he is slowly eating less sandwiches, chips, roast and chicken.
