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!

It’s been a different way of doing feeding therapy in the Lets eat clinic and we have slowly brought in new changes for our little feeding kids to get used to.

For some closer oral motor and swallowing work, safety face shields and safety glasses as well as gloves also get used in line with NSW Health guidelines. So it’s very much a new way of working for all of us.

We always see the positives with life in the Lets eat clinic and here is our positive for this week.... parents are taking a much bigger role in running feeding therapy while we sit behind our screens in a coaching model.

Do you know what? The kids are loving their parents being involved and the parents’ confidence with working around food with their kids are growing exponentially. Parents you are rocking feeding sessions and together- we are all working more collaboratively in what has been new and crazy times.

Thanks for your support and understanding in keeping both you, your child and our clinicians safe. Social stories and videos will be heading out next week so we can help keep all our little people prepared.

Since NSW Health declared an amber alert last Thursday, every practice has been busy putting in more COVID 19 safe rules to keep you and us safe.
Things are going to keep changing especially when it comes to increasing PPE (personal protective equipment eg face shields, eye glasses, masks and screens) across hospitals, community health centries, doctors offices and allied health clinics.
For children who don’t understand the importance of these increasing changes, it can be even more overwhelming. Please start now if you haven’t already with supporting your child in play with face masks. APSPARKS has these great tips to help you.
Stay safe- we will get through this everyone! 😷 Val and Ash #letseatspeech

Absolutely loved spending my morning speaking with Belinda and all of the parents who linked in today to chat about Responsive Feeding (and how to support your child with exploring new foods).
I met Belinda from The Root Cause a few years after following her on Social Media. She now runs a very amazing online feeding program that includes children in food experiments and cooking tasks. Parents don't miss out either - they get access to guest speakers, live Facebook videos and most importantly a chance to link in with other parents in this journey.
If you would like to join this, head to Belinda's website and sign up to the waiting list for September's program. https://therootcause.com.au/quest-waitlist/

How cool is the Kids Quest interactive cafe? The little people move! Very clever Isreal (Bel's husband) - very clever 🙂 Val
