Mary’s parents had every reason to be worried. Not only they were concerned over the limited number of foods she was eating: pizza, white bread, cheese sticks, blueberries and apples, this 6 year old also seemed genuinely disgusted by all other foods. After she gagged a few times and even vomited when trying spaghetti, the parents decided to look for professional help and learned that Mary was a resistant eater. After the thorough assessment by a team of health professional, including a doctor, speech therapist, occupational therapist and a dietitian, a treatment plan was developed and Mary’s parents learnt the strategies they could use when feeding her at home in between the visits to a feeding clinic.
