Diet and Eating Habits at School

For children with recurrent abdominal pain, Walker noted that diet and eating habits may exacerbate symptoms (4). Available foods and schedules for school lunch may contribute to symptoms. Many children may not have sufficient time to ingest their food and use the bathroom in the amount of time provided for lunch. In other cases, the types of food and beverages may also increase gastrointestinal symptoms and result in abdominal distress. In such cases, parents can advocate for specialized diets. With the epidemic of obesity in children and adolescents and the resulting increased risk for other diseases (e.g., type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular problems), it would be appropriate for the school to advocate for good nutritional standards in promoting positive health behaviors.
