This study examined the effects of an exposure-based behavioral treatment on food refusal in a 4-year-old girl who developed a fear of choking after an acute choking episode. Prior to treatment, the child had stopped eating almost all solid foods for 3 months and was primarily consuming a chocolate-flavored pediatric formula. Treatment occurred across the span of 2 weeks and took place at a pediatric feeding program. At the end of treatment, the child accepted over 30 new foods and was no longer dependent on a pediatric formula to meet her nutritional needs. © The Author(s) 2015.
