Feeding Clinic

How We Help

Many children suffer from eating disorders, food aversions, and swallowing difficulties, which can result in stressful mealtimes and nutritional deficiencies. At Playstream we provide a step-by-step feeding program which can be used by even the youngest toddlers.  Through creative play and conversation, our program encourages children to try new and different foods, thus decreasing the stress commonly associated with mealtimes.
