Fun with food – help with picky eaters

We all know the frustration of picky eaters. These school holidays, we are running a school holiday group designed just for picky eaters and problem feeders. The group is aimed at children who will only eat a limited range of foods and/or avoid certain food groups, textures, colours or flavours.

It’s suitable for children aged 6 -10 years who attend mainstream school and will will be held at our Darra Service Centre on Monday, Thursday & Friday of the September school holidays (19th, 22nd, 23rd, 26th, 29th, 30th September 2016)

The goals of this group will be to:

  • Increase your child’s exposure to a range of foods.
  • Allow children to learn about the sensory properties of food.
  • Support children to learn the oro-motor skill required to eat different foods.
  • Increase your child’s range of preferred foods.
  • Develop parent’s knowledge of ways children learn about eating and mealtimes.
  • Support parents to implement effective eating routines at home.

The total cost is $600 which includes 6 group therapy sessions with the Occupational Therapist for your child and 6 concurrent parent sessions with the Psychologist.

Sessions may be claimed using various funding packages including: Helping Children With Autism, Better Start and Chronic Disease Management and Private Health.

Please note this fee may be covered in your Service Plan if you are an existing customer with Montrose.
