To honor Neonatal Intensive Care Awareness Month, Feeding Matters created an infographic to share how prevalent pediatric feeding disorder can be in children who have spent time in a NICU. Feeding is complex, and eating is only instinctual in the first few weeks of life. After that, it is a learned behavior – early intervention is critical.
We invite you to read and share our piece below, and ask that you consider making a gift to sustain our programs which support families, educate medical professionals, and bring awareness to pediatric feeding disorder.
Feeding Matters exists to provide support and spearhead education, advocacy, treatment, and research for this underserved population of fragile infants and children. Thank you for helping us make a difference in the lives of children with pediatric feeding disorder.
