Fun with Food – SOS™ Feeding Therapy Parents of children who are picky eaters now have a new option to help their children expand their dietary horizons and get the nutrition they need to grow and develop. Feeding therapy works to help children who eat a severely restricted range of foods -- usually fewer than 20 foods and sometimes as low as three. Often these children only eat foods of the same or similar textures. For children whose picky-eating habits cause them to lose weight, who are failing to gain weight at an appropriate rate or who often cry or throw tantrums when presented with food, feeding therapy may be able to help. The therapists are trained to utilize an approach to feeding therapy called Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS). This therapeutic technique works to gradually increase a child’s comfort level with various types of food. Feeding-therapy sessions take children on a guided journey to explore and learn about the taste, texture, smell and consistency of food.
