Founded by Valerie Gent, Let's Eat! Paediatric Speech Pathology is a Newcastle based Private Paediatric Feeding intervention service for babies and children from birth to adolescence.

Feeding difficulties in babies and children can be very stressful for parents as well as their child. The goal of Let's Eat! is to empower the family to be able to understand and respond to the feeding difficulties their child may present with. Treatment is clinic based but home and school visits can be arranged with an additional travel fee.

Valerie is passionate about feeding difficulties, she loves working with families in a practical and team focused way.

We look forward to working with you too!

Phew- It’s been a busy start to week 1 of 2020- so here is our tired end of day photo but at least we got a photo to celebrate our first week back achieving new tastes and new foods for children.

Holiday clubs start next week with more clinic appointments. Can’t wait 👩‍🍳 🌮🍕🥓🥯🧀🥞🍎🍊🍍🍌🥒 Val and Ash #feedingtherapists #newcastlefeedingteam #letseatspeech

Is your child aged between 3- 6:11 years old? Our language assessments are based on Australian norms and studies like these help keep the assessment standardisation current.

Can you help out? Please contact Michelle@earlystart.com.au or head to the Pearson website to apply online.

Have a great weekend everyone! Val

Vegetarian Indian food is one of the trickiest foods for my kids. And it happens to be my favourite food.

Last night, I had friends over and made them some of my favourite Indian food- eggplant spiced lentil dhal with dry cauliflower spice masala. Served with chapatti (an Indian flat bread). My boys had 2 tablespoons of the dhal with 2 pieces of eggplant and 2 pieces of cauliflower and LOTS of chapatti.

I could have served them something different but if I did then they would never learn to eat my “love” food. Nutritionally perhaps they didn’t eat enough but it’s one night and today we will have easier vegetables and their favourite... meat.

All kids have elements of fussiness but if we label them, then it sticks. Rather- see food like a journey, some days are super exciting and some can be challenging. But it’s with challenges that we begin to learn and explore more. #letseatspeech #foodexplorer #dontlabelyourchild

Welcome to 2020! I am definitely enjoying the slower pace and hope school holidays are going well for you.

Last Monday Ashleigh and I caught up and put together a very cute “hello” video which our current clients will get as their sessions come up in the new clinic.

In the meantime- don’t forget about our cooking clubs with ability focus OT in Georgetown in 2 weeks. A great time to focus on mixed textures, new foods, fruits and of course vegetables!

Have a wonderful week everyone
