Fostering Positive Relationships with Food For Life


Our team of Accredited Practising Dietitians strive to help children and young adults understand and work on their feeding and eating challenges. 

In session, our Dietitians utilise a range of therapies, including the Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS) approach to feeding and the Division of Responsibility, to help our clients reach their goals and milestones. 

We are available to support children and adolescents in clinic, online or in the comfort of your own home. 

Whether you are concerned about picky eating, problem feeding, food aversion or disordered eating we are here to help guide you. 


Picky Eating

Is dietary variety of concern to you? Do you find it challenging to introduce new foods to your child? This is the place for you. 

We appreciate that picky eating can make it challenging to get enough nutrition day to day. It can also make it difficult to enjoy social outings and activities where food is shared and celebrated. 

Our picky eating services may involve support with:

  • Family mealtime environments

  • Mealtime structure 

  • Mealtime scheduling 

  • Food substitution to support nutritional adequacy 

  • Gentle exploration of new foods

  • Using neutral language around food 

Problem Feeding

When a child or young adult is eating less than 20 different types of food they may be a problem feeder. You or your child may also resonate with problem feeding if the individual has: 

  • Difficulty gaining weight or reaching growth milestones

  • Experiences unintentional weight loss 

  • Difficulty transitioning between food textures 

  • Excluded food groups from their diet

  • Becomes distressed when new or non-preferred foods are offered 

  • Nutritional deficiencies 

In therapy, our Dietitians will draw from the theories and skills of the Sensory Oral Sequential (SOS) approach to feeding to help the child or young adult engage in experiential learning with food. Our aim is to help each child or young adult have fun with food and gradually expand their food repertoire. 

Our problem feeding services may include:

  • Helping your or your child understand the origins of their feeding challenges

  • Experiential learning through play, storytelling or curiosity exercises 

  • Graduated exposure to foods 

  • Family mealtime environments

  • Mealtime structure and routine  

  • Nutrition support; supplements, food fortification

Food Aversion

Food aversion can look different from child to child but may be related to sensory processing challenges. This may present as:

  • Difficulties with certain sensory aspects of food; size, colour, shape, texture, temperature, feel

  • A general disinterest in food

  • Expressing signs of distress around certain foods 

  • Avoiding fresh fruits and vegetables 

  • Preference for snack foods or liquids 

  • Nutritional deficiencies
