Three-year-old Maddie Moore, suffers from a rare condition called Pica, that makes her crave everything from the carpets to paint to washing powder, to bugs, stones, plastic and anything else but normal food. Pica has a rare compulsive disorder meaning she has cravings to eat non-food.  It can be potentially life-threatening, with risks ranging from vomiting, constipation and infections to blockages in the gut and intestines, choking and poisoning. In some cases surgery may be needed to remove objects from an individual’s gut or to repair tissue injuries. Her mum, 26 year old Catherine Mullins had to quit her job to keep a constant eye on Maddie to make sure she doesn’t choke or eat something that could damage her insides.  

Her partner, who is 29 years old also quit his job so they could both watch her. She said: “If she could, she would eat everything. I’m always worried about what she’ll try to eat next. Everything goes to her mouth.“Sometimes, I have to put my fingers in her mouth and hook the food out to stop her choking. You literally can’t take your eyes off her for a minute so our house never shuts down.”

She noticed Maddie started putting strange objects in her mouth just before she turned one, when she began crawling. Maddie’s behaviour prompted tests and assessments at her two-year health check and she was diagnosed with Pica in September last year. She also suffers from autism, developmental delay and sensory process disorder, which causes her to bounce, spin and climb at any opportunity. The family live in Bournemouth, Dorset. At night she has to be zipped into a specialist bed to stop her harming herself while her parents and four-year-old sister Lilly sleep. According to the mum, as she gets older, her interest in normal food has drastically reduced and she only eats foods of a particular colour and texture - like potato waffles, fish fingers and chicken burgers.
