Feeding Disorders

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.
