Feeding and Swallowing Disorders in Children

About Your Child's Care and Condition

When your child won’t eat, or has problems doing so, you worry how he or she will grow and develop. There’s hope for your child and support for you, right here. We’re proud to have one of the few intensive feeding programs in the country.

Feeding problems are one of the most common areas of concern in young children. Problems can range from narrowed diets to total food refusal and complete dependence on tube feedings. For children who have either medical or developmental conditions, feeding can be an even greater challenge. Feeding disorders can negatively impact not just a child’s nutrition and development, but also his or her family’s functioning and quality of life.
