Parent Info Sessions
Parent Info Sessions are a great way to develop a greater understanding of what might be going on for your child and strategies that work for your family. We are able to develop information sessions tailored to your needs so if you have a topic you would like covered please let us know, chances are other families also have similar questions.

Junior Foodies is a small group that focus on food exploration for fussy eaters. Groups are run for ages 3-5 (pre-kinder) 6–8 (school aged). Over 5 weeks, Participants and their families are supported to explore food through play and understand the processes of eating. The group is structured based on the SOS approach to feeding to focus on your child’s feeding goals in a low-pressure environment.
Food Play with the AHA
This group focuses on increasing food exploration for children who have previously attended Junior Foodies. It is developed by our Occupational Therapist and conducted by our friendly Allied Health Assistants (AHA). The group provides children with the opportunity to explore a range of different foods in a fun and low-pressure environment. The group program is developed on the SOS approach to feeding.
Social Foodies is a cooking group for kids aged 7 – 8 and 9 – 13. This group is designed for kids who would like to work on social and conversation skills, increasing their exposure to new foods, building independence, and developing life skills.
