Feeding Disorders Treatment Las Cruces El Paso

Pediatric Feeding Disorders

Children with feeding disorders may be at risk for nutritional deficiencies due to their limited food or liquid  intake. They may refuse entire categories of foods and have a very short list of acceptable foods. The family may say that their child would happily miss meals and does not appear to have an appetite. Feeding disorders can be medical or behavioral or a combination of both. Medical reasons can be related to premature birth, a history of feeding  tubes or frequent hospitalization, developmental disabilities &  swallowing problems.

Home visits are occasionally offered to established clients only. Home visits need to be arranged in advance and may have an additional charge. Availability for home visits is limited.

Additional contact information & a phone number will be provided in your registration. Phone numbers are no longer provided on this website to prevent robocalling.

Meal Plans and Menus

If a meal plan is necessary it will be individualized and available via a smart phone application.

I do not develop day-to-day menus as this fosters a dependency on strict guidelines which is not ideal. However if specific menus and meal planning/recipes is something you need there are some commercial websites available for you to use that are generally based on the USDA database and have incorporated some menu planning, recipes or similar features. We can discuss these when you visit.
