Comfort eating

An infant’s earliest sensations of comfort and protection are related to food. The child’s first physical discomfort is hunger and its first satisfaction is eating. Both the hunger and the relief are identified with mother, so is its feelings of being safe and cared for. Hence the infantile pattern of seeking relief from emotional discomfort through eating food. (Ref: Arnold A. Hutschnecker).
