Feeding problems come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes, it is really difficult for both parents and professionals to determine what exactly constitutes a feeding problem.  Here is a list of symptoms that we often see in many of the patients we treat in our feeding clinic.  We see these symptoms, sometimes alone, and other times combined.

  • Gagging
  • Vomiting
  • Poor chewing
  • Limited diet
  • Refusal to eat foods
  • Poor weight gain and growth
  • Difficult behavior at meal time
  • Poor bottle feeding
  • Difficulty transitioning from bottle to cup
  • Dependent on tube feedings
  • Mouth stuffing or spitting out foods
  • Coughing or choking on foods
  • Aspiration
