A letter from our CEO

Published by Jaclyn Pederson, Feeding Matters CEO on Sep 30, 2021

Friends of Feeding Matters,

Innovation is often viewed as a buzzword. But, when innovation is one of your organization’s values, it needs to be so much more than a buzzword. At Feeding Matters, we do not believe in doing things the way they always have been done. If we did, there wouldn’t be the need for a new PFD diagnosis. We believe in approaching problems with a creative and collaborative lens. We take the initiative to leave comfort zones, embrace new ideas, and generate change.

Tomorrow, the impact of innovation will be felt all around the United States as all children struggling with feeding will be eligible to receive the formal pediatric feeding disorder (PFD) diagnosis on their medical records. Tomorrow is a new day for the feeding community. It is not the end, but rather a new beginning.

And that value will guide the Feeding Matters team and community to continue innovating to reach our vision of creating a world where children with PFD will thrive. As always, thank you for being a part of this journey with us.


Jaclyn Pederson, MHI
Chief Executive Officer
