For a parent, it is an uphill struggle to feed a child who does not like to eat. Other than being utterly confusing, irritating and worrisome, your baby, child or teenager not eating well enough for his age, could also be a medically concerning problem. At Team4Kids, we truly understand the parents’ concerns and strive hard to offer the most effective feeding therapies for children.
For identifying and treating children with feeding difficulties, Team4Kids uses specialized and internationally proven feeding therapies. We begin with assessing the reasons why your baby or child won’t eat. Then, we treat all of those reasons and encourage children to eat a balanced, nutritious diet. With our expert feeding therapies, we help children develop interest for eating wide varieties of foods. We also focus on teaching parents the different ways of making eating a fun process for their kids.
Team4Kids, with its Feeding Therapies, aims at fully treating feeding difficulties in children and supporting their best growths.
If You Identify a Feeding Problem in your Child
No matter how many people tell you that “all kids are choosy”, and “all kids get over their pickiness with age”, do not believe them. Research shows that more than 20% children face feeding difficulties at some point between birth and 5 to 7 years of age with only ½ of them completely outgrowing their struggles.
It may be difficult to differentiate between a picky eater and a struggling eater, but all parents have a natural instinct that helps them assess their child’s difficulties. If you see your baby, child or adolescent, struggling to eat, seek immediate help. Do not wait for them to grow up without the nutrition they needed, just because someone told you it was okay. If you sense any signs of eating difficulties, it is recommended that you go through an assessment of their feeding/eating issues at an early stage itself. It may benefit your child’s best growth.
Team4Kids – Making Food Your Child’s Best Friend
At Team4Kids, our experts begin with an evaluation process that assesses your child as a whole and not just his mouth, gut, or behavior. We use a Multidisciplinary Assessment Team to ensure that all the reasons why your child won’t eat are identified and treated. Our Team consists of a Dietitian, a Developmental Pediatrician, a Behavioral Psychologist, a Speech Pathologist, and an Occupational Therapist. We are all committed to helping every parent improve their child’s growth and relationship with food.
