Feeding Therapy for Babies and Children

Picky Eaters & Limited Food Repertoire
Does your child only eat a small number of foods? Help your child feel comfortable with trying new foods!
Our therapists work to increase the variety of food groups and textures that your child will eat. We can help you feel less stressed about finding foods that your child will eat. You shouldn't need to prepare a different meal just for them!
Has it been tricky introducing solids? Is your baby refusing more advanced textures or "stuck" at one stage? Starting solids is a huge learning experience for our babies!
Our feeding therapists show you how to help your baby be comfortable with solids. Our therapy helps your baby develop the oral skills to eat solids and also enjoy eating.
Does your baby take more than 30 minutes to finish eating? Are they constantly "snacking" throughout the day?
We can help optimize your baby's latch and efficiency with sucking and swallowing.
You're not alone!
