Abstract(s)This study sought to determine the frequency of possible cases of avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) in a Portuguese sample of school-aged children and to assess the associations with child's internalizing problems, BMI z-score and body dissatisfaction, and parents' eating habits, attitudes and practices. We assessed 330 children through child's and parents'measures. Fifty-one (15.5%) children were possible cases of ARFID based on their symptom's presentation. There were no association between sex and possible cases of ARFID, and no significant differences between possible cases of ARFID and nonpossible cases of ARFID regarding age. Lower BMI z-score and anxiety/depression were associated with possible cases of ARFID.
