Eating and Feeding Disorder in the First Five Years of Life: Revising the Dc:0-3r Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood and Rational for the New DC:0-5 Proposed Critera

The main change was in the naming of the category from Feeding Disorders to Eating Disorders. Another key change was the inclusion of a new disorder, Overeating Disorder.
