A how-to on managing complex feeding issues in paediatrics

About the webinar:

There are a range of feeding therapy techniques that can be used to manage complex feeding issues in paediatrics. Join us for an interactive webinar with Accredited Practising Dietitian Lauren Gladman, to explore real life case study examples of children with complex feeding issues. Lauren will present cases ranging from reduced appetite from stimulant medications in children with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, to sensory processing disorders, and tube feeding dependency. Lauren provides you with practical tips around how and when you can utilise different feeding techniques like food chaining, tube weaning and gradual exposure to optimise nutrition in this challenging population.
