Little Food Explorers

This event has ended

Event Description

Does your child:

  • Have trouble touching various non-preferred food items?
  • Become anxious around mealtime or when new foods are presented?
  • Limit their food choices to less than 1 or 2 foods in each food group?
  • Struggle with a balanced diet due to lack of choices?
  • Create tension at mealtimes due to restrictions in food options?

If you have answered yes to 3 or more of these questions and your child meets the following criteria:

  • 4-6 years old
  • Has an effective way to communicate
  • Can follow basic 2 step direction in order to follow a simple 2-3 step recipe
  • Can self-feed with fork and spoon

Then we have the group for you!

The Little Food Explorers Group will be run by a licensed Occupational Therapist in order to increase tolerance of engaging and interacting with new foods as well as to decrease anxiety when presented with unfamiliar foods. This group will include parent involvement for weekly sessions.

Cost: $300 includes sessions and supplies
Scholarship information available upon request
