Collection: Picky Eaters & Food Aversions
CREATE A HAPPIER MEALTIME:
Underlying sensory issues can cause a child to have food aversions, which simply means they avoids certain foods. These children may be over-sensitive or under-sensitive to foods. For a child with over-sensitivity to foods, foods that are slightly lumpy can feel like they contain large chunks, causing a child to feel sick or nauseous. For children with under-sensitivity, they may be unable to taste any flavor when eating. We give you and your child a fun, non-threatening way to work on sensory issues, with the goal of increasing sensory tolerance and reducing fear of textures through play-based strategies.
