Feeding Tube to Family Table: How does that work?

Did you ever wonder why feeding therapy doesn’t look anything like the meals you hope to have?  We did too!  At Spectrum Pediatrics, we believe that tube-fed kids need to learn to eat in the same safe way that other kids learn to eat, utilizing the same principles of healthy eating that are good for everyone.

Meet Jennifer Berry and Heidi Liefer Moreland, as they introduce the philosophy behind the Spectrum Pediatrics Tube Weaning Program.  Watch as they explain how a healthy relationship with food that is shared by the whole family leads to freedom from tube-feeding, enjoyment at mealtimes, and lifelong healthy eating habits.
