Pediatric Feeding 101

Covering the Basics of Feeding from Baby's First Bite to Picky Eating

Wish you knew more about helping kids with feeding difficulties?


Whether you help kids in a classroom, in their home, or in a clinic you are bound to come across kids that are struggling to eat.  You may be the therapist or teacher assigned to help this child or you may be helping them with other challenges they face, either way having some strategies to support their feeding would be extremely helpful, to say the least!

As professionals we can feel desperate to help a child that isn't eating well, or to teach good eating habits from the beginning because feeding difficulties are a tremendous stress for the family.

It can consume and control their lives.

But, it can be overwhelming and even scary to give the "wrong" advise because it could significantly delay progress, or even make eating worse.


Imagine what it would be like to have the knowledge and resources to help feeding difficulties improve...


When therapists and teachers learn new strategies and interventions something wonderful happens: confidence. Suddenly, when you see the child (and family) struggling to eat, transition to table foods, or create a feeding schedule you know confidently how to direct them.

This makes us feel good (and it should), that we are doing are job well (because we are).

Their are a lot of intensive feeding courses available, which are wonderful. But, it can be hard to find a complete resource that covers the basics of feeding.

Because it's valuable to know and understand early feeding milestones and how to guide families through them.

It's critical to lead parents into setting up structured mealtime routines so that children can have the best opportunity to learn to eat a variety of foods.

And, as a therapist or teacher its totally necessary to have some strategies for picky eating in your back pocket.

How can you gain this feeding confidence as a professional?

Through Pediatric Feeding 101, an online course for occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, teachers, developmental therapists, and more. 

In this course you will gain a foundation in feeding milestones (transitioning off of a bottle, starting table foods, straw drinking, etc.)  You'll also learn how to create a structure and routine around meals with 6 specific guidelines that include scheduling and family mealtimes. Lastly you will learn proven and evidence based strategies for picky eating.

And, you don't have to travel anywhere or take time off of work. All you have to do is log in and watch, read, and print all the helpful guides and handouts whenever is convenient with you.  

Pediatric Feeding 101 is based on research and years of feeding experience.
