Brisbane Feeding Clinic

At the Brisbane Feeding Clinic, we understand that mealtimes can be stressful.  If you have a child who is a fussy eater or a problem feeder we can help.  We believe that with a thorough understanding of your child, some new skills and time, mealtimes can be transformed into a positive experience for you and your child.

The multidisciplinary approach taken at Brisbane Feeding Clinic combines the fields of Speech Pathology and Occupational Therapy to offer meal time support for fussy eaters and problem feeders.

Feeding assessment and management is available from birth to 16 years.
