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!

Do you know I spend a lot of time with teachers and teacher aids and it always impresses me that they all go the extra mile for their students especially ones with special needs.

So if you don’t do it often enough, please take the time to thank them. It will make their day and it will teach your child about the importance of gratitude. Their love and kindness makes the world a brighter place for your children (and parents as well). 💐

Sending lots of gratitude and thanks to my boys teacher and to all of my patients teachers and aides xox Val #gratitude #mentalhealthforteachers #letseatspeechpathology

Love this explanation. Thank you @leapsandboundsspeechpathology for the share.

Think about your child’s emotional cup when they are struggling.... they might need a long and deep hug to re-fill it and restore secure attachment.

The world is a hard place to be in when it’s empty in your heart. X Val #letseatspeech

❗️Food safety ❗️

Take home points

1. Washing hands before cooking and after touching meat is essential. Water hands-add soap- rub-rinse-dry🧼🧴

2. Use seperate chopping boards for meat vs vegetables is what we do in the feeding clinic but you can use the same board at home as long as you cut the vegetables first. 🥩🥬

3. Be sure your food is cooked (I use a meat thermometer and aim for all food to be cooked above 65 degrees in the clinic- kids love using this)🌡

4. 2-4 hour cooling rule (see this article) is great when working out when to store or throw food. Our families are provided with a food safety info sheet.

5. Wash all your items in HOT soapy water and rinse in hot water (or use a dishwasher). Make sure that the cloth you use to dry dishes is not the same cloth you use to wipe your hands. machine wash both these towels and any cleaning cloths regularly (we have seperate ones for each client and all cloths get washed daily). 🧽

Hope that helps keep your feeding clinic food safe and your home happy and healthy 🥢🥡🍽

Have a great and good safe weekend and Happy Mother’s (and grandmothers)Day! 💐 💕 Val

I am so excited about these workshops run by @littlepeoplenutrition. Mandy and I used to work together and I absolutely love her approach. If you have a preschooler- I highly recommend it! Xo Val
