IWK Feeding Clinic

The IWK Feeding Clinic sees infants, children and youth across the Maritimes. Feeding can be a complex issue and might involve:

  • Behavioural challenges  (like food refusal)
  • Difficulty bottle feeding
  • moving on to chewable foods
  • Increasing the variety of food in the diet
  • Moving on from tube feeding to oral feeding

As such, a team may be involved in the appointment. You might be asked to feed your child during an X-ray or in the clinic.

The clinician(s) involved in the testing will make suggestions to improve feeding and swallowing.  

Who can refer?

A doctor's referral is required.

Who should be contacted with the referral?

Referrals may be sent to the IWK Feeding Clinic Coordinator.
