Background – An overrepresentation of neurodevelopmental problems (NDPs) has been observed in individuals with avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID). Previous studies on the association between ARFID and NDPs have been limited by cross-sectional data from clinical samples of small size. This study aimed to extend previous research by using prospectively collected data in a non-clinical child cohort. We examined the occurrence of early NDPs in 4–7-year-old children with suspected ARFID and how predictive early NDPs are of ARFID.
