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!

Do you know what I love about our Let's Eat! team? We constantly review how we can "do better - be better".

Today in our team meeting, we looked at our Feeding Therapy Australia house model which forms the framework of the responsive feeding that we do in our clinic.

We talked about clients and how we can "do better, now that we know better" with therapy goals and strategies. And we talked about which clients we will organise "joint sessions" for to build team knowledge and support.

Yep, love our team and the fortnightly peer mentoring that we give each other (on top of the weekly 2 hour individual supervision that they already get with me).

If you are a feeding therapist and want to know about our Responsive feeding model, join me in November when I present to America (with my colleague Debbie) at the Talk Tools conference: https://talktools.com/pages/talktools-feeding-conference

Or subscribe to Feeding Therapy Australia's mailing list for masterclasses, beginner, and advanced workshops in 2022.

You know you’re a mum when you love baking your staff their favourite cake for their birthdays.

In lockdown, this was tricky to do as neither Ash or Laura live in my LGA! (Super disappointed!)

So a dozen cupcake espresso cupcakes instead - we look forward to celebrating with you soon Laura.

Thank you for the maths brain, printer fixer and laughter you bring to our team. You are our creative TikTok fun therapist.

Happy birthday 🥳 🎈 Val and Ash (and all your clients)- Let’s Eat! Feeding Therapy team

Family dining tables should be a “gathering place not a jail”.

A place where “grace and humility” is present.

Not where children are shamed or parents are pressuring themselves to create an ideal of perfection that might not exist.

I like this balanced article- this is the discussion that every therapist needs to have with families-

how can we make this work for you and your family? Let’s create YOUR gathering place.

Ps- I do find the title of the story a bit misleading in trying to sensationalise a story 😉 Val
