A Guide to Easter and Eating Disorders

In the UK, many will celebrate Easter as secular holiday rather than for religious reasons (although some will combine the two aspects.) For Christians, Easter is the day of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ (and is one of the most important festivals in the Christian calendar!) It also marks a four-day bank holiday weekend which often involves plans with family and friends, perhaps with a number of activities centred around food (Easter egg hunts, family meals, baking, hot cross buns… and much more!)

Whilst many will enjoy the Easter celebration and short break from work and school, those who are struggling at the moment may find their eating disorder takes away from the joys and tradition of the holidays.

In this short guide, our team explores the challenges of Easter, as well as some advice and guidance for managing whatever the holidays will bring.
