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!

So much wonder and exploration in our cooking club with Ability Focus Occupational Therapy. Well done kids 🙌🙌

Thank you to all the kids and parents for coming to session 1. Food is hard for so many kids and we are always so honoured to support them and their families in this journey.

Thank you to the Newcastle Uni Speech Pathology students who joined us. We love building paediatric feeding skills and knowledge in soon to graduate SPs!

So glad the weather held out! Fingers crossed it holds out for the rest of the week. 🤞

Do you have a tube-fed child? There’s still time to join our play picnic next Wednesday 19th January! (10am - 11am).

The group is open to both current clients of Let’s Eat! And anyone else who is interested.

The aim of this group is to create a relaxed environment for your tube-fed child so that they can explore food with friends who are going through the same journey.

This play picnic is also there for parents to connect and share strategies. Tube feeding is tricky and who best to know what you are going through than another parent?

Your child does not have to be 100% oral for this group, they can be in the early stages of food exploration. NGT or PEG fed, continuous or bolus feeds – everyone is welcome (even clients where tube feeding has been raised and parents are keen to meet other families for advice). The goal of this group for your child is building their sensory exploration and curiosity with food – not to “make them eat”.

Contact: Val or Ashleigh (Let’s Eat! emails or FB messenger) or call the office on 4940 6515 and one of us will call you back to discuss if this group is the right fit for your tube-fed child (suggested age 0-5 years old).

Preparation has started for our holiday Cooking Club!

Check out the Let’s Eat! Food Wheel which each member of our group will get to take home to support them in continuing to learn about food at home 🏡 🍓🥝 this is a tool we often use in clinic to help our clients and their families look at a food in different ways! It also gives them new words to use to describe the food they are learning about!

We are so excited to work alongside Ability Focus Occupational Therapy for our cooking club next week! Keep an eye out next week for photos of what we will work together to cook!

If you think our cooking club might be useful in supporting your child on their food journey, call us today to be put on our wait list for our next cooking club! 👩‍🍳🧑‍🍳🥘

Let’s Eat! is open from Monday 10th January. We have had a lovely break and are looking forward to seeing all our little clients again.

Here is how we are keeping you and your family safe in this current climate.

1. All therapists are now triple vaccinated.

2. Clinic rooms will remain with HEPA filters on and therapists will continue to wear face masks and shields/goggles.

3. The waiting room will stay closed so please come round the side driveway at the time of your appointment. If you are early, head to the park or wait in the car please.

4. When you come in, please sign in via QR code, wear your face mask and sanitise your hands. Temperatures will be taken before you head into your clinic room. Siblings are encouraged to head to the park for a play during the session (if possible).

5. Where possible, clinic sessions will occur outdoors so please apply sunscreen and bring hats.

6. Groups will still be going ahead at this stage and we will be running them outside (weather permitting).

7. If you prefer, you can have your child’s session via Telehealth. Please contact your therapist and this will be arranged for you.

8. As always, please don’t attend if anyone is unwell. We will be sending you home if this occurs.

It’s been a crazy 2 years with no clear end in sight but together we can support each other. See you with your child next week.
