Kiddo Active’s feeding club is inspired by the SOS approach to feeding program designed by Dr. Kay Toomey. Feeding sessions are conducted by our multidisciplinary team, consisting of both an occupational therapist (OT) and a registered dietician (RD). Each group is designed specifically for the children who are registering in it, based on age and ability level.
Each session will focus on food exploration and desensitization. The aim of this therapy is to increase variety and textures in your child’s diet. Each session will begin with a gross-motor warm-up, followed by food exploration. A weekly document will be provided to each family for parents to record progress at home and daycare/school.
Parent coaching is provided in parent only workshops. It is our aim that the information and experiences from our feeding club transition well to the home environment.
