Mealtime Stories are an exciting new story-based intervention for young children with persistent feeding problems. Using digital photography and simple desktop publishing technology, clinicians can quickly produce books personalized to help children meet their goals. Each book focuses on the child's gains to date and looks ahead to current goals. These books encourage both parents and children to use neutral or positive language about eating. These books are based on themes drawn from the fields of occupational therapy, physical therapy, developmental psychology, infant mental health, and nutrition. The CD included with the 2nd edition of Mealtime Stories: A Guide for Feeding Therapists contains 600 pre-sized photos to use in making books and 15 story templates focusing on common feeding concerns. The photo library includes children and families of diverse ethnic backgrounds. Also included are Spanish translations of our popular story templates and clinical forms.
