Learn about pediatric feeding disorders.

Feeding Matters is creating a world in which children with pediatric feeding disorders will thrive.

Pediatric feeding disorders make it difficult or impossible for a child to eat, drink, or digest food normally, often compromising their health and development. At Feeding Matters, we are committed to partnering with families and healthcare professionals to promote awareness and understanding of this condition.

Feeding Matters was started because too many children were suffering due to a lack of trained specialists, limited identification and intervention options, and the failure of the general public to recognize pediatric feeding disorders as real medical conditions. We are making progress, and understanding is the first step.

Our Mission

We are furthering advances in pediatric feeding disorders by accelerating identification, igniting research, and promoting collaborative care for children and families.
