Food police

Used pejoratively, the term "food police" refers to parents overstepping boundaries and making things worse by insisting on full nutrition. The term is still used by those who doubt the importance of nutrition for recovery, and those who remain wary of parental involvement during treatment.  However, in Maudsley/Family-based Treatment, parents are required to put full parental authority and power behind their non-negotiable demand for "full nutrition, 24/7", as a basic component of the recovery process.
