By children who were born with an illness or abnormality and/or who exhibit an eating problem or who are fed with a feeding tube, every day is defined by numbers – the child’s weight is measured several times a week, the calorie count of the enteral nutrition is calculated, the quantity of each meal is measured out.
To accommodate the numerous inquiries and requests, we have many events planned again this year. NoTube is also growing and moving in 2018!
What about children whose food repertoire becomes limited to fewer than five options and who, after weeks or even months, can’t allow for even the smallest alterations?
Each month, we will be choosing new topic to explore on our homepage, through social media and in our newsletters. We also start offering Live-chats where it will be possible to ask questions on a range of topics and have our therapists answer.
At NoTube, we’ve had an eventful year in 2016. Most significantly, we now feel even closer to our little patients than ever before. This is due to our new therapy center that enables us to welcome families from all over the world in Graz. This is the story of how this therapy center came to be and what we have learnt from operating it for the past year.
This article is about the processes parents try to get their child to eat and why we want you to avoid them, and help you free your child from the feeding tube without using any methods involving force or persuasion.
