When a child experiences difficulties with eating, regardless of the cause, the repercussions extend to various aspects of their growth and development. These consequences encompass weight loss, nutritional deficiencies, challenges in daily functioning, sleep disruptions, reduced energy levels, and impaired cognitive function. Furthermore, it can hinder a child's participation in significant social activities, such as family meals and holiday traditions, while also placing strain on everyone involved at the table.
Feeding therapy is highly beneficial and strongly recommended for children who struggle with actual eating, particularly those with special needs or medical conditions that present physical challenges.
