Pediatric Feeding Disorders
The impaired oral intake that is not age-appropriate and is associated with medical, nutritional, feeding skill, and/or psychosocial dysfunction. A child may have difficulty transitioning from purees to solids. A child may struggle to chew food or take a long time to eat their meal. We take a responsive feeding approach to treating feeding disorders in children. Responsive Feeding focuses on intrinsic motivation to eat rather than just making them eat foods. Many times it isn’t about the food, it’s more about what is going on during the meal.
