Has anyone gone through a Feeding Clinic for their child/ren to get them to eat more than what they do on a very limited menu?
We are trying to get both of our boys into the one at Westmead Children's Hospital as they only eat a very limited menu, and if forced to try new foods end up hyperventilating and vomiting. They both have had hearing problems and speech problems which we think hasn't helped. We have tried ever suggestion given to us by other parents, doctors, nurses and it still hasn't got them to eat better.
So my question is, has anyone else gone through one? If so, how did you find it? Did it help improve your child's eatin

I haven't, sorry, but can I suggest watching "Fast Food Babies" which as on ABC2 last night (should be available on iView).
There was one family that went to a feeding clinic and I thought it was fascinating. I certainly got some good ideas (food play, helping in preparation etc) to help DS eat a wider variety of foods (also a fussy eater). It might give you a couple of ideas to use in the mean time?
I hope you're able to get your boys into one soon

I had a look at that show. Gee's I can relate to that family with the baby that was seriously ill, except ours is with 2 children and has been going on for nearly 3.5 years with DS1 & about 2 years with DS2. My DD is a fantastic eater by comparision.
We have gotten a preliminary appointment with the Speech Pathology at WCH in March, so hopefully we can finally get some help instead of being fobbed off as much as we have
Does anyone else have any experience with these clinics elsewhere in Australia?
