Super Eaters and Budding Chefs

Calling all Picky Eaters! This group is for you. 


Using principles from the Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS) Approach to Feeding and the Get Permission Approach, kids will learn the joy of eating and preparing food in a fun, play-based environment.

Kids will explore textures, smells and tastes, while benefiting from the social part of eating.  Kids will see and experience that eating can be fun and yummy, while therapists are respectful that sometimes eating can feel scary or even gross.    

A variety of tastes and textures will be explored through nutritional foods.
