Feeding Skills
Feeding Kids Feeding skills are vital to ensure that the child is receiving adequate nutrition for his or her development. Eating and drinking are also key tasks that we perform daily in every setting (e.g. home, school) and can affect how we interact with others and our environment.

In feeding therapy, trained therapists may use behaviour modification and/or the Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS) approach. The SOS approach is a play-based method that helps problem eaters develop a positive relationship with food. It aims to gradually reduce food aversion and expand the variety of foods eaten.

Quick Tips
Tips
Here are some general feeding strategies that you can try at home to make meal times more enjoyable!
  1. Routine. Establish a mealtime routine in your home. Routines help your child to anticipate what is coming up next and helps to reduce anxiety around the activity.
  2. Interact. Mealtimes are a great opportunity for the family to bond and to interact with one another. So instead of watching television or switching on the iPad, talk to your child while he or she is eating. You can talk about what he or she is doing in the day, or how you prepared the food.
  3. Try again. Children often need at least 10 exposures to a new food before they will accept it into their diet. So don’t be dismayed when they refuse the first few times, continue trying and persisting.
  4. Owl Tips
  5. Involve them. As much as possible and where it is safe, involve them in the food shopping and cooking process. This helps them to know more about their food and create more opportunities to interact with it outside a mealtime setting.
  6. Praise good eating behaviours and be specific in your praise (e.g. I love how you tried a new food today!).
  7. Eat with your child at the same table. This will allow him or her to be exposed to a larger variety of foods. This is also a good time for you to model appropriate mealtime behaviour (e.g. not playing with our utensils, not throwing food on the floor). Besides, eating with you is more fun!
