A Paediatric Dietitian can help sort fact from fiction when it comes to children’s nutrition. With the right support, feeding kids doesn’t have to be complicated.

Feeding children should be an amazing time for play, flavour discovery and experimenting with textures. With so much confusion surrounding this issue, it can be tricky to navigate.

Sometimes, however, things don’t always go to plan, and feeding issues can pop up.

If you are concerned about your child’s eating habits, it can be helpful to touch base with a Paediatric Dietitian. Seeking help early can prevent nutritional deficiencies and offer support for behavioural changes.

Feeding children does not happen in isolation, there is a family dynamic at play. For this reason, family feeding habits are always addressed when dealing with a food and nutrition concerns with a child.

As a Paediatric Dietitian, I promote responsive feeding therapy and also draw on the Satter Division of Responsibility in feeding (sDOR) in my work. The Satter Feeding Dynamics Model (fdSatter) approach encourages parents to provide a feeding environment in which children can grow up to be competent and intuitive eaters.
