Picky Eating

If your child hates broccoli and grandma's casserole, is that a big deal? Sometimes it is difficult to know when to be concerned about your child's eating habits. One helpful tip according to the Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS) feeding approach is to determine how many foods in each of three different categories your child eats. If your child is eating ten foods in each of the three categories of fruits/vegetables, proteins and starches, feeding is likely not a major concern. LifeScape has several clinicians trained in and using this widely successful approach for picky eaters – 32 in fact – between locations in Sioux Falls, Rapid City, and Sioux City! -Sarah Dickes, MS, OTR/L, Occupational Therapist, LifeScape
