Feeding Support

Parenting is hard at the best of times. It can be so much harder when your child is having feeding difficulties. To assist parents in need across the Illawarra, Feeding Happy Kids provide a unique level of guidance that is aimed at working with whole family to support the child within their existing capabilities.

We work closely with families to create individualised feeding plans that consider a child's motor needs,  sensory preferences, developmental stage, and any specific challenges they may face. Our approach is collaborative, ensuring that parents and caregivers are actively involved in the process, and their input is valued and incorporated into the feeding strategies.

Our ultimate goal is to foster a positive and healthy relationship between children and food. By offering guidance, resources, and ongoing support, we empower families to create an environment where mealtimes are enjoyable, stress-free, and nurturing for both children and parents.

​We help with:

  • Coping strategies for mealtimes
  • Feeding plans
  • Breast or bottle feeding
  • Difficulties with introduction to solids, and age-appropriate texture progressions
  • Garden picky eating and food neophobia
  • Oral motor and sensorimotor feeding difficulties
  • Feeding differences associated with neurodiversity, including Autism Spectrum Disorder or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Oral aversion
  • Tube weaning
