Feeding difficulties are feeding or mealtime behaviors that can be problematic for a child or family. It is likely that at young ages children will exhibit some forms of feeding difficulties, however, if these are not resolved, they can evolve into more serious issues with mealtime.

Some examples of feeding difficulties include:

  • Food refusal
  • Difficulty ingesting or swallowing
  • Fussing over food
  • Picky eating
  • Prolonged mealtimes
  • Food fads
  • Neophobia
  • Disruptive mealtime behaviors
  • Limited or excessive appetite

Identifying if a child has feeding difficulties usually begins a process starting with a full evaluation of their eating behavior. This can then determine what therapy may be helpful during your child’s developmental journey. These therapy times often include food and play that is often adapted to a child’s specific difficulties. For more information on therapy for feeding difficulties, visit our Speech Therapy page or contact Pediatrics Plus to learn about all of our available services.
