Is Solid Food Ever Forced Down An Anorexic’s Throat?
Hi: The Short Answer For This

The short answer for this question is “no”, it should not be necessary for solid food to ever be forced down someone’s throat in order to provide nourishment.
In extreme cases of physical malnutrition, doctors may order a feeding tube. However, this does not involve force feeding solid food to the anorexic patient.
Force feeding solid food is actually dangerous as well as extremely unpleasant. There are other nutrient options available in liquid form in order to restore nutrition to a person.
Wishing you well.
