Welcome to Mealtime Connections
Connecting Feeding Challenges to Mealtime Solutions
Mealtime Connections brings together a group of professionals who have a passion for working with infants and young children and who have an understanding of complex medical, developmental and feeding concerns. Our philosophy is based on the belief that feeding is a relationship that is based on trust. We want every child to enjoy eating, have confidence in his or her eating skills and to eat enough to thrive. Mealtime Connections provides the highest level of evaluation, family support and therapy for every child and family we meet.
We provide a variety of support services that are tailored to meet the individualized needs of each child and family. Our therapists can identify strengths, specific challenges, work with the child's medical team, and partner with the family to create a successful treatment plan and home program.
