Is your child a picky eater? Does your child avoid certain foods?

Picky eating is a typical problem among children, and it may be frustrating for parents who want to ensure their child is getting the appropriate nutrients.
Feeding therapy can be helpful for children with picky eating habits or feeding disorders. Feeding therapy is a type of occupational therapy that is specifically designed to help children learn how to eat and drink independently. It is typically provided by a trained occupational therapist, and it may involve a combination of one-on-one therapy sessions and at-home practice.

Turning Picky Eating into Healthy Habits

Our experienced team of feeding therapists is well-versed in the intricate world of children’s eating behaviors. We know that it’s not just about what they eat, but also how they interact with food. Whether your child is avoiding certain textures, flavors, or even entire food groups, we can help unravel the complexities and offer effective strategies.

"We owe so much to Tumble N'Dots. Last year our daughter, then 2, started dropping foods, refusing to eat, and wound up in the hospital for a severe food aversion. At the time she would only eat fruit snacks and infant puffs. Desperate, we reached out to Tumble and got set up with food therapy with Lichelle. Here we are a year later and our daughter is thriving and eating over 25 different foods. Lichelle's innovation and dedication got us here. The connection she formed with our daughter was almost instantaneous, and our little one is not quick to trust. We are so grateful to have found this program. The owner, Avital, is so knowledgeable and kind, it's a great staff. Really cannot say enough good things. Thanks Tumble N' Dots!"
