What Sensory Therapists Can Teach Us About Feeding Picky Kids
“Piatak and Carraccia’s FED approach is grounded in a single, fundamental principle: The
goal is not to simply get food into a child at any given meal, but rather to reach a point
where a child eats because she or he is intrinsically motivated to do so. This is a long-
term goal for lifelong behavior change, and as such, may take a long period of time to
achieve. Progress is gradual and taken in very incremental steps.” - U.S. News & World
