Why Choose Us for Stress-Free Mealtimes?
Why are we your go-to for stress-free mealtimes? As speech pathologists, we specialise in understanding how the mouth, throat, and eating and drinking work. We focus on comprehending how your children eat and identifying potential issues when they're not eating well.
Fussy Eating Goes Beyond Recipes
Fussy eating is not just about finding the right recipes. Other factors, such as senses, experiences, and even medical needs, impact how children eat. At Learn to Eat. Love to Eat. we take a holistic approach, supporting parents and carers to have a deeper understanding of what might be going on for their child, while teaching a framework that supports more positive mealtimes and encourages new food learning and fosters a healthy relationship with food.
Responsive Feeding Approach for Mealtimes
We use a responsive feeding approach to build a trusting relationship between the child and the person feeding them. This approach empowers children to understand their internal cues for curiosity, motivation, skills, and confidence and shows respect for a child's decision, communication, personal space, body, and sensory needs.
Recipe of Mealtime Success
Combining years of experience and knowledge from various feeding courses, we have developed the "Recipe of Mealtime Success" framework. We use this approach as a solid foundation for learning to eat a range of foods or addressing specific feeding areas.
Parent Education for Mealtimes
Parent education is a critical component of our approach. Without a clear understanding of how to support children during mealtimes, success may be limited. That's why we emphasise parent education and encourage regular mealtimes for consistent practice and development.
