Dr Oz: Child Food Hoarder Tyche

Doctor Oz spoke about Child Food Hoarders.  In this segment, Dr Oz brought out Dr. Kimberli McCallum, MD, PHD child and adolescent psychologist and Molly Carmel, LCSW, who stated that obesity is a progressive disease like cancer, and without treatment, it gets worse. Dr Oz also talked with Tyche, the 11-year-old girl who hoarded food in her room.

    My first thought was; this young lady has parents who are buying bad food. Tyche doesn’t have a credit account to go buy this food. If there was only healthy options she wouldn’t have this problem.

    Additionally, is Tyche being abused? It’s a common symptom for someone who’s abused.

    I truly wish the very best for Tyche and her family. I hope they get the help they need.
