Pediatric & Family Nutrition Counseling, also commonly known as medical nutrition counseling is an important part of treatment of chronic diseases and medical conditions for children & their families.
The goal of feeding therapy is to help patients develop normal, effective feeding patterns & behaviors. Feeding therapy is more than just “teaching a child to eat.” Therapists work closely with patients and their families to determine the source of the child’s difficulties and develop very specific therapies to make the entire process of eating easier and more enjoyable.
