What happens at a consultation?

At your consultation I will carry out an assessment. This involves me listening to your story and asking a wide range of questions to get a clear understanding of your childs nutritional difficulties covering food, feeding and your family circumstances. I will also ask about any current medical concerns and medical history and take this into account. I look at your child's growth, both current and how she grew as a baby. Both height and weight are important. I will also take a comprehensive diet history or look at your food diary and ask questions to gather a full picture. From here we will formulate a treatment plan together that works for your family circumstances, I will explain the reasons behind my strategies and we will plan our follow up consultation(s).

Feeding Therapy

Assessment and education session £130

Child therapy sessions POA

As well as being a dietitian, I am a qualified feeding therapist trained using the SOS approach. This makes me uniquely skilled to manage children with fussy eating and extreme picky eaters.

What is the SOS Approach to feeding?

Having a toddler or child who refuses to eat, struggles with certain foods or is stuck on a narrow selection of food items can make family mealtimes a source of arguments and stress. This is a very common reality, a lot of children don't eat. It’s not just your child. Fussy eating commonly happens in toddlers but does extend to all age groups, even adolescents and sometimes even parents!  

The SOS (Sequential Oral Sensory) approach to feeding considers the whole child and identifies the reason for their feeding difficulty, as eating is a skill babies must learn, difficulties often stem from a missed learning opportunity during weaning. The treatment program is based on identification of the cause and crafting a plan to manage that.

Who is the SOS Approach to feeding for?

The SOS approach to feeding is an appropriate therapy for your child if they:

  • Have a limited range of foods they eat

  • Refuse entire food groups

  • Refuse entire textures

  • Eat a different meal from the rest of the family

  • Are underweight, malnourished or at risk of becoming that way due to their limited food intake

  • Find mealtimes upsetting or distressing

An appointment starts with an assessment of the child and an education session with parents. Many families choose to implement the techniques at home and start their child's feeding therapy sessions at a later date.

Feeding therapy with the child is carried out with the assistance of other trained feeding therapists (usually an occupational therapist, speech therapist and psychologist) over at least one series of 12 sessions and further series may be required depending upon progress. The sessions your child attends will consist of food exploration using all of their senses in a fun way and always within their comfort zone.
