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!

* BOOKS OPEN!

It is wonderful to say for the first time in a long time that our books are open!

We had been letting new clients sneak in over the last 2 months but now we can open it officially. Unfortunately, there are no afterschool appointments available so if you are flexible with your appointment times and days, please call us.

Appointments are available for both home visits (within Newcastle and the Maitland region only) and clinic-based appointments for both private and NDIS-funded clients. There is a small waiting list (7 clients) but if you would like an appointment for your child with our team, then give us a call as, for the first time, we can confidently say "we will see you soon!"

Please call the office at (02) 4911 2364 and Keira or Glynis will take your details.

Thank you,

Val, Mel, Katie, Saffron, Ell, Keira, and Glynis

Difficulties with sleep is a common discussion topic with our clients. If you don’t sleep well (both parents and kids) then it’s hard to function, let alone eat well. Sharing this great webinar for interested parents and caters. Val #letseatfeeding

* DINNER IN FRONT OF THE TV

Family dinner meals come with so much pressure. To sit "perfectly" at the table, eat a nutritious meal, and "chat" about topics.

For some families, particularly those with neurodivergent children, getting through the day itself is exhausting which means they are possibly over-tired by dinner time and more likely to refuse to sit and eat.

Whenever families are struggling with dinner time, I am curious to explore why. If the child's sensory cup is overflowing, then perhaps sitting in front of the TV and eating dinner as a family is exactly what they (and the parents need).

Sometimes, it takes a therapist to say - "how are you feeling as a parent at dinner time?" to challenge the stereotype.

Family connection doesn't have to happen at the dinner table especially if it isn't bringing that family joy.

Let's be more open to creating joyful moments with families instead of what we believe is "perfection". Because isn't that more important?

What do a bunch of feeding therapists do for a night out?

Explore a different cuisine (Ethiopian food), try a new food (goat curry), talk about sensory food preferences (goat curry was a 5/5) and ponder the bigger changing conversation about neurodiversity. So much laughter and connection x

Ashleigh and Kiera, we missed you!

Have a lovely weekend everyone
