Feeding and Swallowing: A Parent & Professional Perspective
Roche, William J.; Martorana, Pamela A.; Eicher, Peggy S.; Daukas, Kristen
Exceptional Parent, v37 n10 p64-67 Oct 2007
As healthcare providers and parents it is their duty to ensure their children receive the proper nutrition. For parents of children who are "picky eaters," "sleep feeders," or "food refusers," this becomes a daunting task. When a child does not want to eat on a consistent basis, adequate food intake becomes the focus of the family. This is the first of a series of articles that will concentrate on feeding and swallowing issues in the pediatric population. This series will educate, inform, and provide resources for families with a child who has a feeding issue. This article shares the story of one family's struggle to resolve their daughter's feeding problems, discusses normal development of feeding and swallowing skills, and provides some facts about feeding and feeding problems.
