Nip in the Bud films may contain content that might be upsetting if you are someone who is affected by eating or mental health problems. If you think this applies to you, please proceed with care.
Nip in the Bud produces short films that explore different mental health problems in children and helps users to identify symptoms early. The charity works to better understand how mental health problems develop and intervene by educating professionals, parents and the general public with a range of resources.
Nip in the Bud provides several films on eating disorders (EDs), focusing on topics including EDs in children, Anorexia in males and the development of Bulimia.
Understanding Eating Disorders in Children
This eight-minute video comes with a fact sheet. It examines ‘fussy eating’ and the first signs of a child having an ED.
It also covers a range of eating disorders (EDs), including:
- Anorexia Nervosa
- Bulimia Nervosa
- Binge Eating Disorder
- Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID)
Susannah’s Story about Bulimia in Young People
Susannah discusses her challenges with poor body image leading to dieting behaviours and eventually Bulimia. The nine-minute film explores her early life as a child with body image issues, the pressure of physical activities and the expectation of being thin, as well as the wider health implications of Bulimia.
Boys Get Anorexia Too
Author Jenny Langley discusses her experience of her son developing an ED and highlights the impact EDs can and do have on boys. When she noticed her son losing weight and overexercising, she didn’t know what to do due to a lack of advice about boys developing EDs. Her story provides valuable advice.
Teachers and professionals, as well as parents and carers of children with eating disorders, will find the videos useful and informative.
SWEDA thanks Nip in the Bud for allowing us to use these excellent videos on our website.
