Helping the Whole Child: Foodtime™ for Sensitive and Picky Eaters (Evidence-Based)

Foodtime™: An Evidence-Based Approach for Sensitive and Picky Eaters (1.5 hrs)

My child only eats a limited variety of foods, how can FOODTIME help expand his/her diet?

  • FOODTIME takes a closer look into the various reasons children have difficulties with eating looking at the sensory, oral motor and emotional components.
  • Therapists then create an individualized treatment plan targeting the specific needs of your child that focuses on helping them choose to increase their repertoire of food to make mealtime a more positive experience.

How do I know the right time to begin feeding therapy?   Is your child is experiencing any of the following?

  • family mealtimes feel like battles
  • eats fewer than 20 different foods
  • poor weight gain
  • traumatic incidents with food such as choking, gagging, and/or vomiting.

 

FOODTIME™ Goals:

  • Increase positive feelings with mealtime routines and with food
  • Increase intake and repertoire of food (total number and diversity of foods)
  • Improve oral motor skills necessary for eating age-appropriate foods
  • Decrease sensory aversions to certain textures and tastes to food
  • Decrease behaviors that interfere with eating
