Let’s Eat! Feeding Therapy supports families with children who are struggling to eat by making mealtime fun for everyone.
In feeding, the parent chooses what foods to serve, and where and when they’ll serve them. Your child chooses which foods they like and how much they’ll eat.
Description: Our first visit will be a virtual session between the therapist, the parents or caregivers, and the child (if they are over 12 years old and interested in receiving the service). During this session, we will discuss your child’s feeding and eating challenges, and will develop a treatment plan for your needs.
Description: During each follow-up session, we will continue to support families to adjust expectations and learn more about their children’s eating habits. We will also support your children by building their eating skills and becoming more engaged in feeding to bring back connection during mealtime.
Please note: home visits are only available for Edmonton and surrounding areas. Feeding therapy can be provided on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis. Most of our visits are 60 minutes, but we have also have 120 minute visits available.

Jenalyn understands the challenges of being a new mom. Struggling to understand why her newborn son was still hungry after feeding, she looked for help from experts. She was surprised at how little support and resources were available for new parents in Edmonton. She decided to complete additional education and use her skills as an occupational therapist to become the feeding therapist that her son, and community, needed.
Jenalyn completed a Bachelor of Physical Education in 2014 and a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy in 2017. She has over six years of experience as an occupational therapist and has experience in community and school-based pediatrics.
Jenalyn understands that it can be devastating as a parent when you feel like you cannot properly feed your child. Whether it’s a baby refusing the bottle, a toddler gagging on solid foods, or a teenager who only eats four foods – when we see our children struggling to eat, we feel like we failed them. She is committed to supporting her clients, and their families, in achieving their goals and strengthening their relationships.
