Mealtimes and Fussy Eaters

Our team will conduct a screening of oral-motor skills and sensory processing patterns to identify what is making mealtimes difficult for your child. We will talk to you about mealtime routines and habits in the home and other settings. A further referral to a Dietician may be recommended to assess dietary intake and to recommend a nutritional plan. We can use techniques such as desensitisation, food scientist thinking and Sequential-oral- sensory approach to feeding (SOS) whereby the sessions are structured and graded so that your child will feel comfortable at mealtimes.

We will tailor a mealtime program that works for your child and your family.
