6 year old child sickness help!!

Posted , 2 users are following.


So my 6 year old is always feeling sick when it comes to food, before after and during she’s feeling sick and is never actually sick. She’ll eat a bit then we have to go to the toilet because she feels sick. It’s not with any particular food and she is an extremely healthy child (maybe to healthy!) she chooses to have salads and pastas for her Dinners. We’ve been to the doctors a couple times as it’s been going on well over a year. They’ve given her gaviscon and it doesn’t help she’s not in pain there’s no burning so there’s no point in giving it her. They said it could be her been picky or the consistency of the food but she chooses her meals the ones she likes so I don’t really think it’s that. I feel like it’s more psychological than physical. There’s a lot of pressure on them at school to be healthy and she takes everything to heart so I don’t know if this has had an affect on her. I just wondered if anyone else has had to deal with anything similar to this and how? It’s really starting to get her down she’s been to her friends and they’ve had to bring her home because she’s feeling this way and they think she’s actually ill.
