Schooldays.ie - Ireland's Online Resource for Parents & Teachers

Parenting & Education in Ireland


According to the Eating Disorder Resource Centre of Ireland, children as young as 5 are displaying signs of poor body image – and some 7 & 8 year olds have developed eating disorders.


We have put together these articles & resources for parents to help understand & recognise if their child or teenager may have a problem & to know where to go for help.
