Chewing the Fat with Our Occupational Therapist and Speech Pathologists

Until now, our entries have focused on feeding issues in children and adolescents. Although feeding problems may become more apparent as your child gets older, it’s important to recognize that most of us have natural or “innate” eating skills at birth. Babies acquire feeding skills as they acquire other developmental skills that serve as the foundation for our eating habits for years to come. In this month’s post, we will discuss the typical development of oral motor skills and when parents should consider consulting with a professional.

Set Up for Success: Developing a Mealtime Routine

Over the past several months, we’ve shared some basic advice for increasing your child’s variety at home and school. If your child generally enjoys mealtime, you may have already begun trying some of these strategies. But for children who don’t enjoy time at the table, tend to come and go, or engage in disruptive behaviors during meals, we often find it helpful to establish a consistent mealtime routine before trying to make any dietary changes. In this entry, behavioral feeding specialist Liz Masler offers us a few tips for developing a more structured meal.
