Founded by Valerie Gent, Let's Eat! Feeding Therapy is a Newcastle based Private Paediatric Feeding intervention service for babies and children from birth to adolescence.

Feeding difficulties in babies and children can be very stressful for parents as well as their child. The goal of Let's Eat! is to empower the family to be able to understand and respond to the feeding difficulties their child may present with. Treatment is clinic based but home and school visits can be arranged with an additional travel fee.

The team at Let's Eat is passionate about feeding difficulties, we love working with families in a practical and team focused way.

We look forward to working with you too!

She whispered quietly to herself- “Friday night takeaway does not have to be the same pizzas every week- it can be something that I love too”.

While it’s easier to always order foods you know your kids will eat, be brave- step out every once in a while.

I love a good poke bowl but my kids love pizza. So we take turns with deciding what we order on a Friday night.

The best thing about poke bowls is that you can assemble your own. Here is my 10 year old son’s version of his poke bowl- did he eat all of it? No, but he surprised us with his huge salad selection and we as adults had a delicious meal that we wanted to eat that night.

So I whisper to you- be brave, step outside the comfort zone, encourage your kids to be part of the ordering and share everything so wastage is minimal.

This is one of my favourite Youtube bloggers to watch.

In this video, Amythest talks about the different types of stimming.

I know that learning from her, I'm very conscious now of observing if the stimming a child is doing is happy (or anxious) stimming, self-regulation stimming or sensory seeking stimming in feeding therapy.

I admit, I didn't appreciate all the variances and am so glad that autistic adults like Amythest are taking the time to educate neurotypical people.
