School Aged Developmental Milestones

Eating & Drinking

Once your child is in school, she should be eating and drinking all of the same foods that the rest of the family is eating. A lot of children can be described as “picky eaters,” and will sometimes refuse to eat some of the foods offered to them, and will be resistant to trying new foods. This is usually quite a normal stage of development.

Red Flags for Eating and Drinking Problems

If your child is showing some of the following signs, it may be helpful to talk to your doctor or another health professional, such as a speech language pathologist, occupational therapist, dietician, or public health nurse.

If you have concerns about your child at any age, please feel free to contact us to speak to a professional. You can also make a referral to our centre at anytime.
