Children with special needs and disabilities may have accompanying issues with food and eating. This practical guide for parents will help navigate this often difficult terrain.

In typically developing children, eating problems are relatively common, affecting 20–40% of children. In children with special educational needs and disabilities, eating problems can be even more common; they can be severe and can take many different forms.

Anyone who has a child between the ages of two and nineteen with an additional need and a food or eating difficulty will find this book useful. Discover the origins of how we eat, and get practical tips from experts, plus read what has worked for other parents in similar situations.
