Facing the Challenges of Picky Eaters and Problem Feeders

Let’s turn the challenge into playful exploration.

The goal of the Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS) approach to feeding is to formulate a child-focused program that includes sensory, motor, oral, behavioral and learning, as well as medical and nutritional factors to help increase your child’s comfort level by exploring and learning about the textures, smells, taste and consistencies of foods. Your child’s comfort level and trust are key components which require parental involvement.

If your child is exhibiting any of the following conditions, please consider the SOS Approach:

  • Poor weight gain
  • Weight loss
  • Continued choking and gagging during mealtimes
  • Vomiting
  • More than one incidence of nasal reflux
  • Ongoing respiratory problems stemming from poor breathing-eating coordination
  • Inability to transition to pureed foods by 10 months or solid foods by 12 months
  • Inability to transition from bottle to cup by 16 months
  • Aversion to or avoidance of an entire food group or texture group
  • A food range of less than 20 foods
  • Crying and/or arching at most meals (infants)
