An introduction to food therapy and how it can help your fussy eater

Food therapy looks at all aspects of the child’s eating including their motor skills, behaviour/learning, sensory needs, medical history and nutritional factors to fully assess and work with children with eating difficulties. Therapists work with your child introducing new food at their pace making it fun as children learn to interact with food through exploring and playing with food. Children will work through the steps to eating by firstly learning to accept the food in the room, in front of them, touch it, kiss it, lick it and eventually tasting and eating the food.
