 Is your child reluctant to eat or drink these days? New research has shown that the corona is behind this

Although loss of taste and smell is a common symptom of corona in adults, if your child is reluctant to eat, he or she is more likely to have these symptoms. In a recent study conducted in Britain, scientists claimed that children who are bothered with food and drink after a corona infection may have post-covid symptoms.

The study was conducted by the University of East Anglia and a charity called Fifth Sense. In it, scientists have discussed paroxysmal disease caused by the corona virus. Parosmia is a condition in which people get bad breath and bad taste from food. It smells like rotten eggs, meat and chemicals. According to scientists, this disorder persists in many people during and after recovery from corona.


Studies have shown that in many cases, children may develop paroxysmal disorders after coronary heart disease. This is why children refuse to eat and drink after covid recovery.

In an interview with the BBC, the university professor Philpott said that for the first time in his career he was seeing paroxysmal disorder in adolescents. “Some medical experts have not yet identified the problem. They unknowingly assume that children are bothered by food,” he said.

Philpott says it’s more difficult for kids who haven’t eaten properly already or who have autism disorder to overcome this post-covidian symptom.

Duncan Bok of the Fifth Sense charity says he has come across many cases where children’s diets and drinks have changed since the corona virus. He told the BBC: “We have heard from some parents that their children are suffering from nutritional problems that have caused them to lose weight. But doctors have left it as a bad habit for children.”

Similar studies have been done before

In a study published last week in the journal Nature Genetics, scientists found that the incidence of paroxysmal disorders in children is increasing. Studies have shown that coronary heart disease is one of the causes. The researchers also said that paroxysmal disorder is more common in women than in men. Also, those who get these symptoms after a corona infection are younger than others.

What should be fed to children with paroxysm?

Duncan Buck says parents should make a food list. They need to be aware of which foods their children like and which ones are not. In addition, children should be kept away from strong smelling food. They need to be encouraged to eat simple foods. The smell and taste problems will not bother them too much and they will be able to eat easily.

Buck says you can also buy a nose clip to close the baby’s nose while eating. You can give children ‘smell training’ for quick recovery from paroxysm disorder. In this, children have to smell four different smells twice a day.
