WHO WE ARE

The Chicago Feeding Group is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting families with children who struggle to eat and professionals who work with children with pediatric feeding disorder. We believe that a responsive approach to feeding therapy is essential and that relationships are at the heart of feeding development.

WHAT WE DO

The Chicago Feeding Group offers education, support, and forums to build connections in Chicago and around the world. We host low-cost workshops and webinars for therapists, parents, and students highlighting current research and intervention for pediatric feeding disorder. We sponsor online support groups for families with children who are struggling to eat. We also host vibrant Facebook communities including one just for families. While most CFG events are currently hosted online as a result of the Covid-19 crisis, we look forward to meeting face-to-face with our colleagues and friends when it is safe to do so.
