Conclusion

Despite the increased awareness of feeding disorders in young children, there remain many challenges in implementing the specialized treatment necessary for these children. Foremost among these challenges is the financial burden associated with diagnosis and therapy. Children who cannot or will not eat require a systematic diagnostic and therapeutic approach by a team of dedicated professionals. The goal of safe oral feeding is attainable in most children when those involved in the care of children understand the complexity of eating and the associated medical and psychological conditions that comprise a feeding disorder. Helping these children to eat will allow independence from artificial sources of nutrition, such as gastrostomy feeds and parenteral nutrition, and ultimately reduce the total cost of health care for these children.
