“Enteral feeding” means delivering nutrients directly into a patient’s gastrointestinal (GI) tract. This can be done orally or through a feeding tube.
Our Integrated Enteral Feeds Advancement Team (IEAT) is a multidisciplinary clinic for children with feeding tubes who may eventually be able to take most of their nutrition by mouth.
Our doctors work with each patient to observe his eating behavior, watch parent-child interaction and make referrals to other feeding programs, if needed. Our doctors can also give advice about developmental eating and feeding stages, such as how to introduce new foods.
