Selective or Picky?

Researchers are currently investigating the psychological difference between selective eating (choosing to avoid certain foods for health, cultural or religious reasons) and picky eating (when foods are avoided because of texture, aroma or other unknown reasons).

Interested? Check out this interesting WDUQ article about the Finicky Eating in Adults Study, a result of the efforts of University of Pittsburgh and Duke University researchers that are seeking to better understand picky eating and its causes. For more information on eating disorders, be sure to explore NAMI's Fact Sheets on Eating Disorders and the NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania website.
