My 14yo, adopted 18 months ago from Ukraine will not eat at school. She eats ALL THE TIME at home (evening, nights and weekends). A LOT. She came home VERY undernourished, and has grown a lot (although still very skinny). She does not vomit, or anything else. It worries me because she leaves home at 6:45 and return at 4, and will not eat anything during this time.
She says she is embarrassed of eating in front of kids.
We tried to help by offering small lunches from home. Also tried getting protein bars, but never lasts more than few days.
We are trying not to make a battle out of it, but it is becoming hard. Even teachers are worried.
What should we do?
In between, she seems well attached, no ODD, no RAD, she is almost fluent in English and surpassing all expectations in school (made the honor roll twice last year, and once this year already).
