Expert guidance for parents, by parents.
You know your child best. We’re here to help guide you to make the best decisions for your family.
Food is meant to be enjoyed, and it is best enjoyed when shared with others.
Nutrition is important, but it’s not the only important thing about eating. Culture, access to food, celebration, life circumstances, medical or developmental challenges, and personal preference all play a role in what and how we eat.
Baby-led Weaning is amazing (and what we teach!), but what's most important is encouraging self-feeding at a pace that feels comfortable to the family. Feeding babies is not "all-or-nothing."
Most kids go through a picky phase—which can last years for some—as a normal part of development. How we respond is what matters.
How your child eats doesn't define your competency or effort as a parent.
Focusing on how we feel - not how we look or how much we weigh - is key to understanding nutrition.
Even if you grew up with an unhealthy relationship with food, you can change the future for your kids.
Having enough food to eat is a privilege and a blessing.
Although Jack's time on earth was brief, the impact he left on this world continues to shine brightly. He has forever inspired love, creativity, and the pursuit of dreams.
Days after Jack's birth, signs of muscle weakness and fatigue emerged. He wasn’t moving his muscles like he should, and he had trouble nursing. Sarah and her husband, Chris, took Jack to the ER immediately.
A week of hospitalization and numerous tests later, the diagnosis arrived: Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), the most severe form, with only six months of life predicted. Their world shattered.
Sent home to care for their terminally ill son, Sarah and her family embarked on a journey with around-the-clock care and life-sustaining machines. Jack relied on a feeding tube, oxygen, and machines for suction and cough assistance, as he had lost the ability to swallow. Occupational and Physical Therapy became integral to Jack's life, leading them to meet Judy.
Judy brought light into their lives. She not only taught them how to keep Jack comfortable but also introduced adjusted toys, customized feeding plans, and the joy of shared experiences. Through Judy's support, Sarah began to feel like a mother again. Jack experienced the taste of apples and peaches, and enjoyed getting flour on his hands while making pizza dough.
Judy reminded them that Jack was still a baby, capable of experiencing the wonders of childhood. The bucket list they created for Jack included visits to the zoo and aquarium, hikes in nature, and felt rain on his cheeks. Sarah threw monthly birthday parties and celebrated most holidays ahead of time, as no one knew which would be his last.
After Jack’s passing, Sarah connected Judy and Megan and forever changed their paths. It is because of Jack that Feeding Littles exists.
