Feeding disorders are common in infants and children. Multiple interacting behavioral, anatomic, and functional factors all can impact on the feeding process, making the evaluation and treatment of pediatric disorders complex and challenging. Knowledge of the normal process of feeding and swallowing, a careful history, observation of the patient during a feeding session, and selected tests usually provide an understanding of the underlying cause of feeding difficulties. Treatment of underlying pathology and careful balancing of the risks and benefits of oral feeding underlie the selection of an optimal management strategy.
