Becoming a Food Scientist is a feeding group for school-aged children struggling to eat a well-rounded food diet. The child may be experiencing difficulties or stress during mealtimes which is limiting their growth and development.

The feeding groups at Integration Station follow the SOS Approach to Feeding program, an internationally recognized approach for assessing and treating children with feeding difficulties. When participating in the feeding group, children will expand the their acceptance of undesired foods by integrating sensory, oral motor, fine motor, and learning factors.

Children will gain greater understanding of why our bodies require certain foods and the importance of a balanced diet for successful participation in play and learning.  They will identify food characteristics while engaging with foods such as smell, taste, color, and feel.
