This live, interactive Masterclass provides professionals and parents with concrete, practical tools to help their child who struggles with eating. Parents of kids with feeding disorders face challenges at breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack time. They often spend the day worried about how much their child will consume, unsure of how to help them learn to eat more variety and concerned about the child’s nutritional health. Studies have shown that as parental stress increases, positive parent-child interactions decrease. Yet, a consistent, positive feeding relationship between parent and child is essential to making progress in feeding therapy. Providers and professionals who treat children for feeding difficulties want to know how to support both the child and the family with practical strategies within the family’s everyday routines. What approach can parents take that will provide them with steps to bring joy back to the family table while the child’s feeding development improves over time? A child’s relationship with food always influences family dynamics and a family-centered approach to treatment is essential to achieve progress in feeding skills, whether the child is “just a picky eater” or has been diagnosed with a pediatric feeding disorder.
This session provides strategies for both healthcare professionals and parents of children with feeding disorders and picky eating behaviors. Feeding therapy requires consistent follow-through throughout the day and caregivers become easily overwhelmed. Helping parents feel confident in their ability to feed their child and enjoy that time together while following through on therapeutic goals is essential for success.
- Provide parents of children with feeding difficulties specific strategies for common mealtime challenges, including teaching a child to enjoy sitting at the table, interact with food via play and participate in mealtime routines.
- Identify activities and routines throughout a child’s meals or snack times to support treatment strategies.
- Break down challenging behaviors into manageable pieces and communicate to parents how to address those pieces in a positive manner, building success in treatment over time.
