Food aversion getting help

(2 Posts)

Hi! Just wondered if anyone else has had problem with food aversion (it seems common in children with food allergies). I want to get some help as LO seems to gag on veg. Has anyone managed to get help from HCPs? If so, how?

Just seen your post. DD has food aversions and allergies. We've spent over a year seeing the dieticians at the local hospital (plus allergy, eczema and also asthma clinics) and I've continually asked for a referral to a specialist for feeding therapy. After pushing the issue it turns out my GP could have made the referral!!

I looked online at my nearest paediatric hospital with a dedicated feeding clinic (this one was within gastro), called the clinic secretary and asked for the referral criteria. I'm now asking my GP to fax a referral.

Not sure if that helps?
