Fun with Food!

Welcome to Fun with Food! This site was designed to help parents and caregivers find, share and ask about fun foods for your selective toddler!

As a speech-language pathologist specializing in pediatric feeding and swallowing disorders, I encounter many children who have experienced negative associations surrounding food. These children often have accompanying oral motor feeding difficulties and sensory processing difficulties--making eating a very stressful experience instead of an enjoyable one.

This website will hopefully serve as an "idea place" for meals as well as questions and support from other parents and caregivers. Enjoy!

Pudding and Prayers

The sweet little "cover girl" on my blog is a patient whose mom has given me permission to post pictures. She is recovering from her 3rd open heart surgery in Boston and has experienced some complications including infection, elevated heart rate and fever spikes.

Please keep this little girl and her family in your thoughts and prayers so they can all find the strength to push through each day! Here she is re-discovering the joy of chocolate pudding :)
