Mealtime and Feeding Support

Is your child:

  • A fussy eater?

  • Struggling to put on weight?

  • Spitting out food, vomiting, gagging or has food or drink coming out of their nose when eating?

  • Experiencing meltdowns or cries during mealtimes?

  • Having difficulty transitioning from purees to solids by 12 months of age?

  • Not weaned off baby foods by 18 months of age?

  • Averse or avoiding specific textures or food groups?

  • Not eating the same meals as the rest of the family?

  • Having very limited or restricted intake (less than 20 foods)?

If you answered "YES" to any of the above, feeding therapy may be beneficial for your child.

Feeding therapy can help to improve oral motor skills, swallowing, and feeding skills such as acceptance of age-appropriate size portions and a variety of foods.
