Feeding Groups

CCS offers weekly feeding groups for picky eaters. Each week different foods are provided for the children to learn about, look at, smell, taste, and categorize. These groups have a strong focus on FUN in order to create positive new experiences with a variety of foods. Guidance for food chaining at home is additionally provided in order to increase the foods the child is exposed to outside of the clinic, and ultimately to expand the child’s diet.
