Some children become truly anxious and fearful around mealtime. Seeing, smelling or touching new foods can be highly stressful for these eaters. Mealtimes can be overwhelming and frustrating as parents struggle to get their child to eat something. It is easy for families to fall into the same routines as their children prefer the same safe foods prepared in the same predictable way at every meal. The therapists at Mealtime Connections partner with families to reduce stress, help children discover strategies for trying new foods and enjoy family mealtimes.
