Paediatric Feeding – A series of virtual workshops on the assessment and management of children with dysphagia and feeding challenges
November 29, 2021 @ 8:30 am - December 7, 2021 @ 10:30 am
Feeding Difficulties can be a real concern for parents. Feeding our children is one of the most important jobs a parent can do! The constant worry your child is getting enough nutrition to grow and to be healthy can be very stressful. Constant battles every meal time can lead to both parents and children dreading mealtimes! Children frequently miss out socially if they don’t want to eat or can’t eat. It makes going to birthday parties, picnics, restaurants or family events very stressful. Ensuring a child is taking in adequate nutrition for growth and learning in an unstressful environment is the aim. Some of the children we see are under weight. Some have weight appropriate for their age and some are over weight. However if eating meals is stressful for the whole family support for eating may be required. Children might look like they are a good weight but help may be needed if there are gaps in their nutrition (e.g., limited protein). What ever the problem, the key factor is to determine whether your child is consuming the quantity, range of foods and textures needed to obtain all their nutritional requirements.
