Due to the corona virus, we are changing all Play Picnics to VIRTUAL Play Picnics until further notice, all dates will take place as planned.
If your child has any feeding or eating problem, a Play Picnic might be the best “next step” for you. The main goal is to meet members of the NoTube team personally and make parents familiar with NoTube’s therapy programs.
All children and parents are asked to sit on a mat or tablecloth on the floor, and different kinds of foods are distributed—just like a picnic! Toddlers are encouraged to crawl around and explore food in a non-intrusive way while parents eat (but without offering food to the child). With Play Picnics, the child is able to autonomously play with and normalize food and eating. This method helps children with feeding problems experience food without the pressure of having to eat right away; over time, it helps them accept eating food orally as well. We designed Play Picnics to help you get acquainted with our method and as a way to determine if we might be a good match for each other.
