Has anyone sent their child to a feeding therapist?


Has anyone sent their child to a feeding therapist? If so, what kind? Was it worth it? My 3 -almost 4- year old was just diagnosed. She has a very limited pallet. I realize now, she is probably just scared of food because its been making her sick. I want to expand the number of things she eats & get her to trust that foods that are good for her. But I feel like I just don’t know where to start. TIA

  1. My nephew was on the autism spectrum. He would only eat bread and cheese and some yogurt. He went to a Occupational Therapist for feeding Therapy at age 2-3 and then did the full protocol of the GAPS Diet. He is no longer on the spectrum!!! He is a great eater-veggies, fruit, nuts, meats…all flavors and textures!

  2. My son went to a food therapist for about 9 months. It was the best thing. Although he doesn’t have celiacs, he had an issue with textures and feel of food. It was a lot of work, but we are at the place now that he will at least try new foods even if he ends up not liking it. If you have any questions, feel free to ask/pm me. Best of luck!

  3. I quit eating most food in grade 5, not realizing why. I was left with pudding, and fruit for my lunches. Wasnt diagnosed with Celiac til in my late 30’s.
