Reducing Food Selectivity

As a child’s palate develops and they are introduced to an increasing number of tastes, textures, and food, some parents notice a desire for sameness or rigidity in accepting and trying these new foods. Concerns surrounding aversions to foods and textures is not uncommon. Several new research studies have highlighted the effects of food expansion programs using principles of reinforcement and other ABA procedures in order to help reduce a child’s food selectivity. Additionally, some children eat non-food items or items with little nutritional value which cause concern in parents.

Matthew collaborates with parents and pediatricians to incorporate reduction of food selectivity, increasing the range of food items eaten, and encouraging healthy food habits. If your child struggles to try new foods ask if behavior analysis services may be right to expand your child’s range of foods accepted.
