Group Description

Support Group for Parents of Children with Feeding Issues

Join in conversation with other parents who have answered "yes" to any of these questions:

* Is your child not transitioning onto different-textured foods?
* Are mealtimes a battle instead of an enjoyable experience?
* Does your child have reflux symptoms?
* Have feeding difficulties significantly impacted your child’s growth?
* Has a feeding tube been required?
* Is your child a “picky eater”?

Food and sharing meals are such an integral part of life it is hard to comprehend that for some eating can be so hard to do. The process of learning how to eat is more complicated than many people realize, and things that interfere with that process can cause difficult delays in one of the most essential skills for children.

Parenting a child with these kinds of needs can feel very isolating and frustrating. Most parents feel a natural urgent need to provide the most basic of necessities for their child: food. Having others to talk to who share a common experience about this can be quite comforting. Other parents at different levels of dealing with feeding issues have much experience and knowledge about these things and can be of immense help to other parents.

This on-line group is an additional place for our support group members to share their stories and discuss ideas. The group meets monthly in the Seattle area. It has been in existence since 2000 and is facilitated by members who volunteer their time.

If you are interested in attending, or would like to participate in our on-line discussions, please click the link to request an invitation. We will inform members of changes to our schedule and provide reminders for meetings. Professionals may join the on-line group being mindful of its purpose to connect families.

Please remember that all children are different. Anything you learn on this website should be discussed with your family member's physician
