Huh SY, Sullivan NR, Huntington N. (2016) Pediatrics. 2016 Jan;137(1) 1542 doi: 10.1542/peds.2015-3635A. Epub 2015 Dec 31.

We read with interest the article by Zucker et al,1 "Psychological and psychosocial impairment in preschoolers with selective eating.” The authors reported that moderate and severe selective eating (SE) were associated with current and future psychological symptoms, and that “findings suggest that health care providers should intervene at even moderate levels of SE.” We believe that the reported data do not support these conclusions.
