“Mom… I’m hungry!” If only I had a dime for every time I’ve heard these words… I’m sure that you feel the same! It didn’t help that it seemed that I heard this when I was also at low ebb and my creativity and energy were low. My saving grace ended up being a list on the front of the fridge (or the inside of a cabinet door depending on where we lived at the time) that I could look at for ideas and planning ahead.

I am often approached by parents with questions for feeding low tone children. A low tone child is a child diagnosed by a doctor with low muscle tone and typically needs to work with an occupational therapist. This condition also afects the strength of a child’s articulator and muscles for eating as well. We typically see struggles with having enough muscle strength to support the smaller muscles for eating and speaking.
