Our team of dietitians have the following paediatric-specific expertise:
Paediatric feeding issues:
Kerith and Lani are both training in the Sequential Oro-motor Sensory (SOS) feeding approach for dietary management of sensory food related issues and child feeding. We offer a range of behavioural and sensory approaches to child feeding issues for children and families. Conditions that may be managed using these approached include Failure to thrive, overweight and obesity, feeding issues related to Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Our dietitians work across the spectrum from failure to thrive to childhood obesity, using a whole-of-family approach and collaborating with other health professionals to assist children to achieve and maintain healthy weight.
