Two Siblings with Different Feeding Issues – Feed to Succeed Podcast Season 4, Episode 8
In this week’s pediatric nutrition podcast, registered dietitian Betsy Hjelmgren, RD and culinary expert Jen Karakosta addressing feeding a family with multiple feeding issues (and staying sane!).
Terry Labanowski, mom of two young children, struggled as her oldest began dropping foods from her repertoire beginning at age 2 years. After months of evaluations, her daughter was diagnosed with autism, and with therapy, has been slowly increasing the accepted foods. So when her younger child began showing signs of feeding difficulties, Terry was cued in right away. But his issue was different – he had an over-active gag reflex. Listen in to hear how one family deals with multiple infant and toddler eating issues, as Betsy and Jen chat with Terry in this touching podcast.
