There are many reasons why a child might be refusing food or refusing to eat at all. For some it can be due to pain or discomfort they have associated with food from earlier childhood and for others it can be an exacerbation of control. We treat every child individually. For us to assess your child please book an appointment.
The best way to contact us is by emailing email@example.com

We can help all babies and children with any food related issue, food allergy or worry regarding their feeding and swallowing.
We help by providing immediate access to a dietitian led feeding team with expertise in feeding disorders. Our multidisciplinary service of dietitians, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and physiotherapists will assess your child’s eating behaviour and develop a treatment plan to suit them.
We work with children straight from birth.
The time the feeding therapy lasts differs depending on the child and the problems they have. For a specific estimation, speak to our dietitian by getting in touch.
Some children will outgrow their feeding problems (hurray!) but for others consideration for dietetic therapy is appropriate. It usually depends on how severe, what the causes are and how long the feeding problems have been going on for.
At the moment we only offer outpatient services.
We are different from the NHS in that we have the time, staff and resources to ensure your child gets the attention and therapy they need to overcome their individual feeding or weight management problem. Our practitioners are all HCPC registered with experience in both NHS and private sectors.
A multidisciplinary evaluation is when there is a team of people from different professionals which group together to give a diverse and in-depth assessment.
Having a multidisciplinary approach enables us to assess your child to the highest standard. This is especially beneficial if your child has any additional support requirements as it ensures all problems that affect your child’s eating are managed and evaluated.
Each professional is qualified within their field with at least a BSc, with most already having or working towards a MSc. Every employer is HCPC registered, the governing body to ensure they are working to the best of evidence based practice.
Weaning and complementary feeding can be tough for babies and mums, especially when they seem to be aversive to solid food. However, it's essential solid food is introduced by six months old to ensure they progress healthily. We can help you every step of the weaning process to ensure your baby is getting the nutrition they need to grow and develop.
