A child with a feeding disorder typically has difficulties related to eating or drinking. Some children don’t eat anything at all while others eat very little and don’t gain weight or grow. Some children have problems chewing and swallowing while others don’t have a healthy, balanced diet because they will only eat certain foods.
The Munroe-Meyer Institute provides an interdisciplinary approach to the assessment of children with pediatric feeding disorders from birth to age 12. Teams include experts from developmental medicine, psychology, nursing, nutrition, speech therapy and occupational therapy.
